Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo said he doesn’t expect much change from Chelsea in terms of tactics despite Frank Lampard’s departure.

At the moment, Chelsea have yet to appoint a new manager.

Thomas Tuchel is expected to be announced as the new Chelsea manager soon and could be present for the home fixture against Wolves on Wednesday (Sky Sports).

But like many, Wolves boss Nuno admitted that he had no idea how the Chelsea team is going to look like tomorrow.

“We don’t know exactly how Chelsea are going to present themselves,” he told Wolves‘ official website.

“We don’t know the manager. What we know is the quality and talent of the Chelsea players.

“We expect a tough match and whatever the manager is, he won’t have much time to impose his own ideas, so we think it’ll be close to what Frank [Lampard] was doing before.

“We are talking about a very good team, a squad full of talented players, so we are aware tomorrow is going to be very demanding and tough for us.”

Chronicle view

Chelsea are currently racing against the clock so Tuchel could be on the touchline against Wolves.

Even if he made it in time, he would not have the time to really implement any significant tactical changes.

Joe Edwards and Anthony Barry have led the training sessions following Lampard sacking.

And they are likely going to play big roles in assisting the expected new manager for this particular fixture.
