Thomas Tuchel has made three changes following our defeat at Everton last weekend and a full week to prepare for today’s game.

Romelu Lukaku returns to the forward line in place of Kai Havertz, making his first start since the home match against Arsenal four games ago. Christian Pulisic replaces Mason Mount in the attack where he is joined by Timo Werner.

With Jorginho having suffered an injury during the game at Goodison, his half-time replacement then, Mateo Kovacic, is named in today’s midfield alongside Ruben Loftus-Cheek who retains his place.

The defence is unchanged.

Wolves also make three changes from their home defeat against Brighton last time out with Jonny, Pedro Neto and Raul Jiminez coming in.
