Who will face Chelsea?

Who will face Chelsea?

Tomorrow Chelsea come to Molineux. Following wins over Manchester City and Liverpool, Wolves will go into the game quite confident despite sitting bottom of the table.

Perhaps it's the lack of pressure that helps us perform, or perhaps its just luck, but so far this season we have performed better against the so-called bigger clubs and failed to get results when we are expected to challenge for points and wins.

If we had picked up the expected points against the sides around us in the table we'd be well placed in the Premier League this season, instead we're propping up everyone else.

So not really an ideal time to have an injury crisis, but that just about sums up our season to date.

While Kevin Doyle and Jody Craddock have returned to training, it is highly unlikely they will be involved tomorrow.

Steven Mouyokolo, Karl Henry and Michael Mancienne will also be absent as too are long-term absentees Michael Kightly and Adlene Guedioura.

So what will Mick do? What would you do? Why not let us know on the article comments below.

As I am not Ward's father, I would select Fletcher up-front (though I am not his father either , even if I did grow up in Shropshire and did go out with the odd Shrewsbury girl ... !). As for the defence, who are still standing? It has to be Berra and Stears in central defence, with Zubar and Elokobi alongside them. Not Ward under any circumstance but he'll be there somewhere, even if it is in goal.

fletcher up front for definate with SEB.. they play well together.. i've been reading about zubar.. and apparently when he made a name for himself he was playing as a defensive midfielder but was converted to a centre-back (maybe because the formation didnt suit a defensive midfielder and the manager wanted to keep him in the team) which is when he started making mistakes and the fans started getting on his back.. maybe it would be worth playing him as a defensive midfielder in the absense of henry and mancienne. and put foley back in at right back. apparently when he was playing as a defensive midfielder he was linked with arsenal.
