Chelsea will look to book their place in the quarter finals of the League Cup when they take on Everton at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Here is the side we think Antonio Conte will pick for the game:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is expected to be given a rest with Willy Caballero coming in between the sticks tomorrow night.

Defence: Young defender Andreas Christensen is also in-line for a recall to the back three after not featuring during the 4-2 win over Watford at the weekend.

David Luiz is the man most likely to make way with the Brazilian international rested meaning Antonio Rudiger and Gary Cahill could keep their places at the back.

Midfield: Cesar Azpilicueta played out wide on Saturday afternoon but I think we’ll see him rested with Davide Zappacosta starting in the right wing-back position.

Marcos Alonso should also be given a well-earned breather with Kenedy given another chance to impress on the left but Conte doesn’t have too many options to rotate in the middle of the park.

N’Golo Kante is still out with a hamstring injury while Danny Drinkwater is also still nursing a calf issue that’s kept him out since he joined the club in the summer so Conte may have no option other than to stick with Cesc Fabregas alongside Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Attack: Michy Batshuayi is almost certain to get a recall up front with Alvaro Morata rested and the Belgian international will be in confident mood after coming off the bench to turn the game around on Saturday.

Eden Hazard and Pedro could also be given a breather with Willian coming back in to the attack while youngster Charlie Musonda could get another chance to impress.

Here is how we think Chelsea will line-up:
