[Teams] Carabao Cup: Chelsea vs Derby | Confirmed Line-Ups From Stamford Bridge

By on October 31, 2018


Chelsea will be looking to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup when they welcome Frank Lampard’s Derby County to Stamford Bridge this evening.

Maurizio Sarri has made several changes to his starting eleven with Willy Caballero given a chance to impress in goal with Kepa rested while Davide Zappacosta, Gary Cahill, Andreas Christensen and Emerson Palmeiri coming back in to the defence.

N’Golo Kante keeps his place in midfield but Jorginho is rested with Cesc Fabregas and Mateo Kovacic getting recalls. Ruben Loftus-Cheek gets a deserved start after some excellent performances of late while Willian supports Alvaro Morata in attack.

Pedro is fit enough for a place on the bench after suffering a stomach problem at the weekend while Callum Hudson-Odio joins Danny Drinkwater in being named among the substitutes.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:


Caballero; Zappacosta, Cahill, Christensen, Emerson; Kante, Fabregas, Kovacic; Loftus-Cheek, Morata, Willian.

Subs: Bulka, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Drinkwater, Barkley, Hudson-Odio, Pedro

Derby County

Carson, Bogle, Keogh, Tomori, Malone, Wilson, Mount, Lawrence, Huddlestone, Waghorn, Marriott

Subs: Roos, Forsyth, Johnson, Bennett, Holmes, Nugent, Davies
