Chelsea go into the last game of the season knowing that a point will be enough to secure a place in the top four.

The race for a Champions League place will go down the wire with Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester City all separated by a point.

The game against Wolves might not be an easy one, as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side has been in good form and are fighting for a place in the Europa League.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea midfielder and pundit Craig Burley doesn’t have confidence in the Chelsea defence and doesn’t think it’ll be possible for the Blues to keep a clean sheet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

“I have no confidence to sit here and say they will keep a clean sheet at home against this Wolves side,” former Chelsea player Craig Burley told ESPN FC.

“By the way, they [Wolves] are still getting pushed by Tottenham for the Europa League places, so that’s important to them. We know about the pace of [Adama] Traore, we know about Raul Jimenez running in behind – these are all issues for Lampard.

“I’m wondering whether [Lampard] rips it all up and goes back to the back four again, but then who’s that back four and personnel? Does he keep Reece James at right-back? Does he drop his skipper [Cesar] Azpilicueta?

“Does he go for the experience? Does he bring Emerson [Palmieri] back into a flat back four because we know [Marcos] Alonso’s better as a wing-back? And the big conundrum is if he’s got two centre-halves, which two is it?

“We know he’s got no N’Golo Kante to cover in front so that’s a big issue as well. So, look, Chelsea are super exciting going forward, that isn’t the issue. The issue is clear and obvious and they’ve got it all to play for on Sunday, trust me.”
