Wolves have suffered narrow 1-0 defeats to both Liverpool and Manchester City this month and both times were unlucky not to come away with a point.
Only a goal from Divock Origi deep into stoppage time gave Liverpool victory, while Manchester City needed a contentious penalty.
Tuchel will be expecting a tough test, but Chelsea must find a way to win.
