Their absence was felt on Thursday as the Blues were held to a 1-1 draw by a decimated Everton side, leaving Tuchel’s side four points adrift of leaders Manchester City.
With the Premier League yet to reach the halfway stage, Tuchel will not panic just yet, but the German is aware that failure to beat Wolves could leave them as clear outsiders in the title race.
Chelsea have gone six matches in all competitions without keeping a clean sheet, conceding 11 goals in the process, while only Mason Mount is showing any consistency in the final third.
The England playmaker has contributed four goals and two assists during his last four outings in the top flight, and the West Londoners will require more magic from the academy graduate against a well-oiled Wolves team.

Bruno Lage’s side will continue to come in for criticism while they average less than a goal per game this season, their return of 13 strikes the second lowest in the division.
Nevertheless, a 1-0 victory was enough to get the better of Brighton on Wednesday, Wolves keeping their sixth clean sheet of the campaign and extending a run of conceding just twice in six outings.
Wolves are expected to be without Rayan Ait-Nouri and Hwang Hee-chan after the duo sustained injuries at Brighton.
Jimenez is likely to replace Hwang, with Francisco Trincao dropping to the substitutes’ bench, while Marcal should remain at left wing-back after coming through unscathed on his first start since October 16.
The reminder of the team should stay the same with Joao Moutinho getting the nod over Leander Dendoncker.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, Timo Werner, Romelu Lukaku will all miss this fixture due to coronavirus, while Tuchel said that Kai Havertz was feeling ill on Thursday.
NAME: Wolverhampton – Chelsea
DATE: 19 Dec 2021
TIME: 14:00 UTC
VENUE: Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton, England
Seven wins have come from their last 14 in the top flight, the fifth-best return since September 11, and Wolves will relish the opportunity to heap further misery on the European champions.
While Raul Jimenez will likely get the nod in attack after suspension, Wolves showed enough at the Amex Stadium that the extra movement from three rotating attackers could be an effective tactic over the coming weeks and months.
