Wolverhampton Wanderers face a Chelsea side who will be looking to record their fourth successive victory in the Premier League on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.

Wolves will be facing a resurgent full-strength Blues side who will be aiming to continue recent positive form in order to challenge for a place in the top four.

Nuno’s side are set to welcome back goalkeeper Rui Patricio, according to a report published by BBC Sport.

John Ruddy started in goal last week in order to prepare himself for Wolves’ FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United during which he is likely to start.

Nuno’s Wolves side can go into the game with a positive mindset as they won the reverse fixture 2-1 at Molineux through goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota.

The club have also been very impressive this season and have managed to take the most points off clubs in the top six than any of the other 14 teams in the league, added the report by BBC.

Wolves will be looking to challenge for a place in the Europa League next season, which is very impressive when you consider that they only won promotion to the Premier League last term.

They are also unbeaten in their previous five games played in London this season.

Meanwhile, Wolves defender Ryan Bennett will miss the game against the Blues as he is serving a two-match ban.

The absence of the 28-year-old will no doubt be a blow to Nuno’s side. He has been a first-team regular for them this season and has played 28 times so far in the top-flight, scoring one goal.
