Chelsea handed Kai Havertz boost ahead of Wolves

Chelsea handed Kai Havertz boost ahead of Wolves

Wolves vs Chelsea

Chelsea are scheduled to face off with Wolves on Sunday afternoon.

Thomas Tuchel’s side head into the game no doubt desperate to put an end to their dismal recent run of form, which has seen the Blues slip down to 3rd in the Premier League table, four points behind an in-form Manchester City side.

Chelsea’s last outing saw them take on Everton at Stamford Bridge. Granted, a few key stars were missing for the Pensioners, but they still should have had little issue dispatching an Everton side who had won one in nine and had personnel problems of their own.

But Chelsea were forced to settle for a point on the day, once again failing to keep a clean sheet.

Nevertheless, they really shouldn’t struggle to keep Wolves quiet in gameweek 18. Bruno Lage’s side have scored just 13 goals in 17 outings this term – the lowest in the division barring Norwich City.

Thomas Tuchel on Kai Havertz

Ahead of the Wolves tie, Thomas Tuchel would speak to the press on Friday.

When doing so, team news, inevitably, proved a major talking point.

It was already common knowledge that all of Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi were set to miss out this weekend, whilst Kai Havertz was also feeling unwell:

On Friday, though, Tuchel has confirmed that there have been no more positive Covid-19 tests in his squad, and that Kai Havertz does not have the virus:

“We are happy Kai has a negative result and is back in training but the lottery starts again tomorrow.”
