Armando Broja

Chelsea failed to sign a new striker in January, and with Tammy Abraham currently suffering from an ankle issue, it means Lampard is having to rely on Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshauyi.

However, in the youth team, Armando Broja is having an excellent season with the U18s and the Development squad.

Broja is a tall centre forward, but he also has some decent pace and is willing to run down the flanks and spread the play.

He will be looking to show the clinical finishing that he has shown all season.

Tino Anjorin

There has already a lot been said about Tino Anjorin, with the youngster having had his first team appearance in the Carabao Cup against Grimsby Town.

The 18-year-old is a stand-out at FA Youth Cup level, as shown in the 7-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers when he bossed the match in the number ten role.

He has great ability on the ball, and a natural pace and power that really helps him get past players from midfielder and drive towards the defence.

Anjorin is already on Lampard’s radar and will be looking to make another impact tonight.
