Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri looks set to make a number of changes to his team for the EFL Cup clash with Liverpool. The Blues will look to rotate for the midweek clash at Anfield, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Antonio Rudiger and Pedro not set to feature due to injuries.
Chelsea’s top scorer Eden Hazard is likely to make the trip to Merseyside, despite the fact the two clubs play each other again on Saturday in the Premier League.
Assistant manager Gianfranco Zola has hinted that defender Gary Cahill could make his first start of the season while teenagers Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ethan Ampadu are also in contention.
When asked about the game, Zola admitted it will give the fringe players the chance to impress ahead of a busy period.
Chelsea have advanced from each of their last seven League Cup third-round ties but Wednesday’s trip promises to be a close encounter.
