EPL top four: Michael Owen predicts how it’ll end between Chelsea, Wolves

EPL top four: Michael Owen predicts how it’ll end between Chelsea, Wolves”

Chelsea host Wolves in the Premier League with their Champions League qualification at stake.

Kepa was dropped for four successive league games earlier this season and was also among the substitutes for the 3-0 defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

They are now in fourth spot in the Premier League table but third-placed Manchester United will make the trip to fifth-placed Leicester City.

Wolves will be looking to become the latest side to exploit Chelsea's backline and they head into the game with a bit of momentum on their side after recovering from a recent blip.

Daniel Podence found the back of the net against Palace and it will be interesting to see if the Wolves boss opts to stick with him or does he move him back to the bench.

The total costs of those three players will be somewhere north of $150 million, but the financial windfall of qualification for Europe's top club competition should generate enough wiggle room to fund further purchases - and both Lampard and Abramovich will be well aware of the specific holes which need to be plugged at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Wolves are a great team on the counter and Chelsea will have to be really solid at the back today.

Jota, Jimenez and Adama Traore - certainly a front three that is capable of causing problems for Chelsea's defence that have conceded 54 goals this season, more than any other team in the top half of the Premier League table.

Wolves will fancy their chances against Chelsea's back four.

Chelsea will be without Tomori and Gilmour for this one.

Wolves are perhaps the only side who have a fully fit squad so clearly Nuno Espirito Santo will have no issues selecting his strongest XI on Sunday.
