Team News

Chelsea- Victor Moses, Gary Cahill, Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard are all injury concerns for Chelsea ahead of Wednesday’s League Cup clash With Bournemouth. Place bet on Live Matches 24/7

Maurizio Sarri should name a similar XI to the teams he sets out in the Europa League. Ethan Ampadu will hope to start if Cahill fails to recover from injury in time.

Bournemouth- Tyrone Mings has a back injury and won’t feature for Bournemouth in midweek, while Tuesday’s cup game will likely come too soon for Simon Francis.

With Adam Smith also ruled out, Bournemouth are short of options at right-back. Eddie Howe may have to revert to a three-man defence as a result and adopt someone like Jordon Ibe as a wing-back.

Other fringe players like Diego Rico, Marc Pugh, Jack Simpson and Jermain Defoe will also hope to get some game time against Chelsea.
