The Blues currently occupy the fourth spot in the table, with Chelsea holding a five-point advantage over Manchester United and Wolves, who are fifth and sixth respectively.

Frank Lampard’s comments on Edinson Cavani
Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has suggested that the Blues could make a move to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani this month.
The Uruguayan forward has asked to leave Paris this month, amid reported interest from Chelsea and Manchester United, while PSG sporting director Leonardo confirmed that the French side had turned down a bid from Atletico Madrid.
And Lampard has not ruled out a move for Cavani before the end of the January transfer window.
“He’s a great player, I played against him and I always loved his mentality and attitude, and obviously his goal scoring record speaks for itself,” the Chelsea head coach said when asked about the 32-year-old at his pre-match press conference.
“I’m not absolutely aware of what the situation is, so we’ll see. He’s an experienced player, but so are many other players out there.
“I think we are young, and we know about the transitions. The idea of bringing in experience is something I’m certainly not absolutely looking away from.
“Because sometimes the young players need a little bit of help, and if that’s the case then that may help us.”
Timo Werner transfer decision
Chelsea has been strongly linked with a move to sign RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner this month.
The Blues are not the only club to have been linked with the German international though, with Premier League leaders Liverpool also reportedly interested in signing the 23-year-old.
According to the Daily Mirror, Jurgen Klopp is a long-time admirer of Werner and the Reds are interested in a £60m transfer.
German outlet Bild has also claimed that Anfield would be Werner’s preferred destination if he decides to leave the Bundesliga club.
It is, however, understood that Werner will not be leaving the Bundesliga this month, with a summer move more likely for the coveted forward.
Chelsea has been sent a message by RB Leipzig over the forward’s future, after one Blues fan took to Twitter to try and suggest that Timo Werner could be on his way to Stamford Bridge, RB Leipzig moved to send a message in response.
Fresh setback for Frank Lampard amid the key departure
Chelsea and Frank Lampard are set to lose Eddie Newton in the coming days to Turkish side Trabzonspor.
The 48-year-old joined Lampard’s first-team staff in the summer to link up with Lampard on his return to the club as head coach.
But now, local reports suggest that the former Chelsea midfielder, who played 214 times for the Blues between 1992 and 1999, is now set to join the Turkish Super Lig side, who are currently managed by Huseyin Cimsir.
This would be a blow to Lampard, with Newton a well-respected member of the coaching team, having spent the previous three years working with the club’s loan players in his role as a technical coach, prior to joining the first-team set up when Lampard replaced Maurizio Sarri in the summer.
