Burnley contained Chelsea last weekend to earn a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor but Wolves manager Paul Lambert insists he would not copy Burnley’s approach.

Lambert revealed Wolves would try to take Chelsea out of our comfort zone as they did with Liverpool.

“We will have to do what we are good at and not get drawn into playing Chelsea’s way. We will have to find a way of taking them out of their comfort zone, as we did at Liverpool,” Lambert said.

“What Burnley did was excellent but I saw the possession stats were incredibly high in Chelsea’s favour, which you would expect. Burnley are ahead of us in league terms and Sean has done a great job there but I would be uncomfortable with teams having a lot of the ball.

“I’m not so sure, so I’m not going to play the same way that Burnley did. That’s taking nothing away from Burnley because they got a brilliant result but when you sit and wait for a team to come at you you’ve got to hope they have an off-day and don’t fire at all levels.”
