In the third round, Lampard made several changes as the Blues beat Nottingham Forest 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, and he is likely to do so again against the Tigers.
Lampard has also given an update on the Blues’ January transfer plans ahead of the game, with Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham sustaining an injury that has ruled him out of the game against Hull.
