Frank Lampard takes charge of his first game back at Chelsea when they face Wolves in the Premier League this weekend.

Chelsea head to Molineux under Lampard’s tutelage, his first match back since being dismissed back in January 2021 which saw the Blues go onto win the Champions League.

They are winless in their previous three Premier League outings (D2, L1) which has seen them slip to 11th and fighting to get back into the top half.

“To come back at time where the club have asked me to come and take the role, that’s the most important thing, but also with the belief that I can come and help the cause in this period until the end of the season,” the 44-year-old said ahead of the fixture.

He added: “We have to have a belief in the players we have in this squad. I’ve got a huge belief in them from the outside and I’ll tell them that. It’s how we can take them in the right direction and of course we want to win games.”

Here is all the information for the league encounter:

Chelsea team news to face Wolves

Edouard Mendy was on the bench against Liverpool and was a popular pick in Lampard’s previous reign so may fancy his chances of returning to the side.

Cesar Azpilicueta has returned to training after a knee problem, but his availability remains unclear. Thiago Silva is still not back in training following his knee injury against Tottenham Hotspur.

N’Golo Kante made his first start in eight months on Tuesday against Liverpool, while Mason Mount is making his way back to full fitness and could be selected by Lampard, who has been extremely complimentary of the England international.

Lampard has confirmed he has his own ideas for the team and revealed the squad has a ‘clean slate’ following his appointment.

“I remember being here before and I had lots of difficult decisions of really good players and good people that you have to tell, you’re not involved this week,” the Chelsea caretaker boss said on managing the large squad.

“Part of the job is to try and manage that situation and make every player feel included. Maybe in the beginning, with it being a short term, that’s a positive thing for me because everyone can have a clean slate as such, and show in training and be competitive in training and the competitive nature can crossover onto the pitch.”
