Christian Pulisic is back in the starting lineup for Chelsea while Kai Havertz and Timo Werner also start as they gear up to take on Wolves at the Molineux.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has made just one change to the side that started at the weekend against Everton for the away game against Wolves on Tuesday.
The change sees Christian Pulisic return to the starting lineup after missing the last game with a minor injury issue. The USMNT star slots in on the right flank for Chelsea, with Kai Havertz moving to the central midfield as Mateo Kovacic drops out to the bench at the Molineux.

The rest of the lineup remains the same as Pulisic will be partnered by Olivier Giroud and Timo Werner in the final third of the pitch. Havertz, on the other hand, will have Mason Mount for company in the middle of the park while N’Golo Kante will sit in the defensive midfield position.
The entire backline remains unchanged as Reece James, who was one of the few positives against Everton, starts at right-back while Ben Chilwell continues on the left. Kurt Zouma and Thiago Silva start at the heart of the Chelsea defence against Wolves, with Edouard Mendy retained between the sticks.
Chelsea Starting Lineup: Mendy, James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell, Havertz, Kante, Mount, Pulisic, Giroud, Werner.
