Live updates from the 2.05pm GMT kick-offEmail Nick here or tweet him here, if you fancyJorginho: ‘I don’t consider myself Sarri’s golden boy’Live scoreboard: the latest from Sunday’s games across Europe 1.54pm GMT Sarri speaks: “It’s an opportunity but we have to play 10 matches and every match will be a risk but also a big opportunity. The match in Wolverhampton we played a good match for 60-65 minutes, then we conceded a goal and stopped playing for 10 or 15 minutes.” 1.44pm GMT Liverpool are 3-1 up now over Burnley – they’ve had to come back from a goal down there – and it’s almost done, so the title race remains a Thing. 1.31pm GMT Today’s dangerman for Wolves is definitely Raul Jimenez – he has 15 goals this season and I must admit I didn’t see this coming when he joined them on loan from Benfica. He was never prolific there but he’s come to England and hit the form of his life! Any Wolves fans want to tell me what’s gone so right? 1.19pm GMT In case you missed it, a decidedly unsavoury story from this lunchtime’s Birmingham derby, in which Jack Grealish has been attacked by a crowd member: Related: Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish attacked by spectator in derby at Birmingham City 1.03pm GMT Chelsea: Kepa; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Rudiger, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Pedro, Higuain, Hazard.

Actually it’s more like the former, isn’t it – Maurizio Sarri was, apparently, on the brink a month back but they’ve won three in a row since that . errm . eventful League Cup final defeat, an occasion you’d have to say he emerged from rather well. Perhaps that was a watershed moment; perhaps they had just, as all teams in transition do, had a blip in the month or two before then. Whichever way you slice it, things look rosier now – but they need to keep the wins coming if they’re to make the top four.They’ll overtake at least one of Arsenal and Manchester United if they win today, and still have a game in hand. Will they do it? They face Wolves, the team directly below them and a mere . THIRTEEN POINTS behind. That tells you enough about the top six and the rest, although Wolves have the ambition to close it pretty quickly. They tend to enjoy these games against the top teams and put on a show – they certainly did that in beating Chelsea 2-1 at home in December. They also occasionally turn in displays like the 1-0 defeat to Huddersfield a couple of weeks back, so let’s see if we get the side that goes toe-to-toe with the big boys today. If we do, this middle fixture in today’s triple-header could be the best. Let’s hope so! Get your emails and predictions in to me, and we’ll have team news for you soon.
