Frank Lampard makes two big decisions ahead of their penultimate game of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Frank Lampard has made two crucial changes to his team from the game against Liverpool which ended 5-3 in favour of the Reds in rather anti-climatic fashion.

The first of these changes comes in goal where Kepa Arrizabalaga has been dropped to the bench after being heavily criticised for his suspect performance in the last game. Willy Caballero gets the nod ahead of him.

The Argentine will be screened by the same back-three that has started their last three games – Cesar Azpilicueta on the right, Kurt Zouma through the centre and Antonio Rudiger on the left.

The second line of defence consists of an unchanged four-man midfield with Marcos Alonso and Reece James as the wingbacks on the left and right respectively. These two will be flanking the double pivot of Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho. N’golo Kante fails to make the cut for the Blues despite returning to training ahead of the game yesterday.

There is another change up top as Willian is on the bench for what is possibly his last Premier League game in a Chelsea shirt. Christian Pulisic returns to the lineup after missing out on the starting XI against Liverpool due to a knock. He will be aided by Mason Mount who will play on the right, as Oliver Giroud leads the line.

Chelsea Starting Lineup: Caballero; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Giroud, Pulisic
