Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard are among six players recalled to the side by Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea prepare to take on Wolves on Stamford Bridge.

Higuain has replaced Olivier Giroud as the Chelsea striker, with Hazard coming into the side in place of Willian. Pedro is the only player who has been retaining in the attacking trident by Sarri ahead of the game against Wolves. Callum Hudson-Odoi has to make do with a place on the bench once again.

In midfield, the Chelsea boss has made just one shuffle, with N’Golo Kante coming into the starting lineup in place of Ross Barkley, with Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic keeping their places. At the back, there are three major changes, with Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger and Emerson Palmieri returning to the side.

Azpilicueta dons the armband for the Blues, lining up as the right-back, with Emerson on the opposite flank. Rudiger is partnered by David Luiz at the heart of the Chelsea defence that will provide cover to Kepa Arrizabalaga once again.
