Chelsea face off with Wolves on Saturday afternoon.

Chelsea head into the game looking to bounce back following the sacking of Graham Potter.

Frank Lampard has been named caretaker boss for the remainder of the campaign and this will be his first game in charge.

The top-four is already out of reach, but Chelsea will still be desperate to get into the Europa League places.

As for their opponents on Saturday, after a bright start to the year, Wolves’ form has fallen away in recent weeks.

That result has left Julian Lopetegui’s side sat 14th in the Premier League with 28 points – only one more than 18th place Bournemouth.

Mount pulled up in training yesterday with the same abdomen injury he’s been struggling with. It is added that it is too early to say how much longer he’s out for but it is a clear setback for the midfielder:

Mount is also expected to miss out vs Real Madrid next week.
