Chelsea face Wolves this weekend, and they will be missing 4 of their first team squad through injury.
Thomas Tuchel has just taken the pre match press conference ahead of the game tomorrow, and he named N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chilwell as missing.

Winger Hudson-Odoi is back in training, but clearly the game has come too soon for him, and we will have to wait to see his return.
Andreas Christensen will probably also miss out, as Tuchel has taken to not using him while his contract status is unsure. Mateo Kovacic sounds like he’s fit to return, but he’s not fully fit and could well need to come off after an hour or so.
That leaves the team pretty short in midfield, where Ruben Loftus-Cheek is set to step up again and continue his recent renaissance. He’s played a part in every one of the last 11 games, and looks likely to make that 12.
