Frank Lampard has made some changes from the side that lost on penalties to Tottenham in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night with Thiago Silva coming in for Fikayo Tomori to line-up alongside Kurt Zouma in the middle of defence.

Cesar Azpilicueta keeps his place at right-back so Reece James is named among the substitutes while Ben Chilwell also starts at left-back for Chelsea. N’Golo Kante is handed a recall in midfield and the Frenchman starts alongside Jorginho so Mateo Kovacic has to settle for a place on the bench this afternoon.
