Chelsea Releases Starting Line-Up For Their League Cup Match

Chelsea Football Club is an English professional football club based in Fulham, West London. Founded in 1905, the club competes in the Premier League, the top division of English football.

After an unbeaten start to the Premier League season, Chelsea will look to kick start their EFL Cup campaign with a victory on Wednesday, when they welcome Aston Villa to Stamford Bridge.

The visitors have already been through a round of the competition, thrashing fourth-tier Barrow 6-0 in August, while both sides come in on the back of 3-0 victories in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will remain without first-choice goalkeeper Mendy, who missed out against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, while winger Christian Pulisic is also expected to continue a spell on the sidelines.

Thomas Tuchel will likely use this opportunity to rotate his squad, with the likes of Werner, and Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chiwell expected to feature from the start, while centre-back Trevoh will also play a role after making an impressive start to the Premier League campaign with a goal for his boyhood club.

The English club released the starting lineup for today's game on their social media accounts.

Chelsea confirmed starting lineup: Arrizabalaga; Christensen, Chalobah, Azpilicueta; James, Niguez, Kovacic, Chilwell; Hudson-Odoi, Werner, Ziyech
