Captain Picks For Chelsea Vs Wolves:
Five Players You Should Pick For Your Fantasy Team From Chelsea Vs Wolves:
Christian Pulisic (Chelsea):
This is a man you surely need to pick. Deemed as ‘Captain America’ by the Chelsea fans, Christian Pulisic has been doing wonders since the restart of the campaign. The 21-year-old left-winger had gone on to score four goals and delivered two assists in that period and been the main man in constructing Chelsea’s attack. He will be looking to give his side the upper hand against Wolves.
Raul Jimenez (Wolves):
The emphatic forward who have huge responsibilities on his shoulder. If Wolves are to taste Europa League football next season it will be because of their Portuguese striker. The former Benfica number 9 has scored four goals post-lockdown to give his side hope of claiming a Europa League spot next season. He will keep an eye for another goal this weekend to end the campaign on a high.
Olivier Giroud (Chelsea):
The Frenchman just can’t stop scoring and since the restart, he had been a rejuvenated figure on the frontline even keeping club’s top scorer Tammy Abraham on the bench. The 33-year-old had managed to bag five goals, more than anyone in the squad, all coming at crucial stages of the game. So, with his experience and goal hungriness, he is the one to take in fantasy teams this weekend.
Matt Doherty (Wolves):
The right midfielder has proved to be an important member of the squad, doing bits in his position. He provided a delightful assist against Crystal Palace by controlling an exquisite pass from Joao Moutinho for Podence to score. Wolves will be hoping for something similar from him on Sunday.
The Brazilian is still at his best at the age of 31 and will be convincing his club for a new contract. Willian had put up a decent show after league resumed on the month of June and will be looking to carry on his good form against Wolves to conclude a fantastic season for him and the team.
