Chelsea will take on Wolves in a do-or-die season finale fixture on Sunday, July 26, to be played at Stamford Bridge.

The match will prove critical for both teams, with Chelsea angling for a Champions League place.

Wolves, on the other hand are keen to seal a place in European football once again after another spectacular campaign in the Premier League.

The Blues currently sit fourth on the charts with 63 points, on level with Man United who occupy third place.

The west London side's leaky defence has seen them lose points through the season and Frank Lampard will have to rethink his set up as he faces an aggressive Wolves side.

As such, Lampard could be forced to assemble a squad that can take the game to Wolves to ensure they earn a favourable result.

The Englishman, therefore, may have no choice but to revert to his largely used 4-3-3 formation, with Reece James being deployed as a defensive midfielder.

James’s athleticism, defensive qualities, pace and strength will come in handy in providing cover for a shaky defence.

The youngster could thus play ahead of Cesar Azpilicueta, Christensen and Kurt Zouma who could be lined up in defence with the erratic Kepa Arrizabalaga manning the net.

Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount and N'Golo Kante could take charge in the midfield, with Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud and Willian leading the hunt for goals.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Frank Lampard and Jurgen Klopp were involved in a heated exchange during Liverpool's 5-3 victory over Chelsea.

The Blues manager was spotted on camera using a foul language at his counterpart in an incident involving players from either side.

Matteo Kovacic tackled Sadio Mane as referee Andre Marriner blew the whistle for a free-kick as Lampard and Klopp clashed on the sidelines.
