Wolves expected 4-5-1 v Chelsea: Anfield winner returns in four changes
By Danny Wright
Paul Lambert is expected to make a number of changes to the Wolves side that suffered defeat to Wigan on Tuesday night.
His side take on Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Saturday evening.
Andreas Weimann is expected to return to the line up after his heroics in the last round helped them beat Liverpool at Anfield.
He would come in for Bright Enobkahare who played 82 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to the Latics.
Lee Evans and Connor Ronan also look likely to be dropped as Lambert looks to bring in some experienced heads for the huge cup tie at Molineux.

Evans didn’t play well against Wigan and came in for some harsh criticism from fans after the game, while Ronan was applauded for his efforts.
Despite the fans being pleased with Ronan’s performance, Lambert is set to bring in George Saville and Conor Coady to tighten up the midfield that will have to cope with the likes of Eden Hazard, N’Golo Kante and Pedro.
Mike Williamson is expected to be fit after making the bench for the game against Wigan. He is likely to replace Richard Stearman in the back-line and join club captain Danny Batth.
Wolves have made it past two Premier League clubs to make it to this stage of the competition.
They have already won two away games against Stoke and Liverpool before being drawn against Chelsea for Saturday’s clash.
