Full Chelsea squad available for Wolves clash revealed as Graham Potter suffered major injury blow

Despite Chelsea’s midweek victory in the Champions League group stage, Graham Potter was dealt a severe setback ahead of a hectic stretch of games when summer signing Wesley Fofana sustained a knee injury.

While many members of the first squad are expected to be back for the weekend match against Wolves, Fofana is expected to miss crucial contests against Manchester United and Premier League leaders Arsenal.

The newest reports from France have allayed worries that Fofana, who was spotted leaving Stamford Bridge on crutches, would be sidelined for a long time.

N’Golo Kante is certain to miss Potter’s first Premier League home game after being left off the matchday roster against AC Milan last week, but players like Jorginho and Kai Havertz appear prepared to play again.

Marc Cucurella, who was only able to sit on the bench against Milan due to sickness, may start on Saturday.

At the perfect time, the Blues are also regaining their form. With two victories in a row across all competitions, Potter’s team now appears more dangerous going forward. Even without the French combination of Fofana and Kante, they’ll be aiming to win three straight games.

With that in mind, let’s look at the team that Potter has at his disposal as he attempts to earn three more Premier League points.

Below are Chelsea squad that could face Wolves this afternoon:

Goalkeepers: Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcus Bettinelli.

Defenders: Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Kalidou Koulibaly, Malang Sarr, Trevoh Chalobah, Marc Cucurella.

Midfielders: Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mason Mount, Mateo Kovacic, Conor Gallagher, Denis Zakaria.

Forwards: Kai Havertz, Raheem Sterling, Armando Broja, Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
