Chelsea welcome Wolves to Stamford Bridge tonight in the hosts’ first game under Thomas Tuchel.

Tuchel was announced as Chelsea’s new head coach yesterday after Frank Lampard was relieved of his duties on Monday, and – having overseen a training session last night – the German will be in the dugout this evening.

Chelsea will look to respond after a 2-0 league defeat by Leicester in their last outing in the division, with a 3-1 FA Cup win against Luton Town at the weekend proving neither enough to keep Lampard in his job nor to convince fans that performances are improving.

The Blues’ recent form has them in a mid-table position, while Wolves enter the match 10 points clear of the relegation zone, having failed to win a top-flight game in their last six efforts.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Premier League meeting.

When is it?

The game will kick off at 6pm GMT tonight at Stamford Bridge.

How can I watch it?

The match will air live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate. Subscribers can also stream it live on the BT Sport website and app.

Chelsea: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Thiago Silva, Chilwell, Jorginho, Kovacic, Ziyech, Havertz, Hudson-Odoi, Giroud

Odds

Prediction

Wolves would normally be one of the last sides a newly-arrived manager would want to face, but their poor form might just give Tuchel a platform to get off to a winning start in west London. Chelsea 1-0 Wolves.
