The FA Cup returns and Chelsea are in for a tough fifth round visit to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux Stadium tomorrow evening, but despite the step down in the opposition’s level compared to Chelsea’s, Antonio Conte has confirmed to be lining up a strong squad with several first-team players included.
David Luiz and Marcos Alonso are set to be rested with the Brazilian still suffering from a problem with his knee, and the Spaniard slightly struggling with his fitness.
Some youngsters are still believed to be stepping in in Michy Batshuayi and Nathaniel Chalobah, and even Kurt Zouma could start over skipper John Terry – who has also just recovered from an ankle injury – in the back three.
It’s likely that the Blues will once again form into the 3-4-3 formation, and we’re believing that Pedro could play in the left wing-back’s role to cover the absent Alonso. Willian will serve on the right wing with Eden Hazard playing on the left.
Here is our full prediction of Chelsea’s potential starting line-up against Wolves tomorrow evening…
