Whether Chelsea qualifies for next season's Champions League will be known on Sunday when the Blues welcome Wolverhampton to Stamford Bridge on the final day of the season, and American Christian Pulisic is in the starting lineup. Chelsea enters the day in fourth place in the table and can finish anywhere from third to fifth. A top-four spot will guarantee them Champions League qualification for next season. Wolves are hoping to qualify for Europe as well, needing to finish in the top sixth to qualify for the Europa League. Tottenham is one point behind Nuno Espirito Santo's team.
Chelsea coach Frank Lampard decided to start backup goalkeeper Willy Caballero over Kepa Arrizabalaga, noting Kepa's struggles this season. Here's how you can watch the match and what to know:

Chelsea: The Blues are coming off that wild 5-3 loss to Liverpool, and the defense needs to improve. Pulisic was fantastic in that game with a goal and an assist. He's been sensational when on the pitch, and it's impossible to see how he doesn't make an impact in Frank Lampard's side in this one. When it comes to qualifying for UCL, a win or draw will do it, or a Manchester United win at Leicester City.
Wolves: They control their own destiny with a victory allowing them to qualify for Europa League. As long as Tottenham doesn't earn more points than Wolves on Sunday, a spot in Europa League will once again be theirs. Now, since all games are at the same time, you cannot really be result watching, so expect Wolves to come out strong, determined and to go for the victory, while also looking for revenge. Wolves lost at home to Chelsea 5-2 in September.
The Blues deliver on Matchday 38 to qualify for UCL. Pick: Chelsea 2, Wolves 1
