Tino Anjorin will feature on the bench for Chelsea against Liverpool tonight in the FA Cup, according to Nizaar Kinsella.
It was widely suspected this would be the case after the midfielder didn’t feature in the U23 squad at all for last night’s game, and now the Goal.com journalist says he has confirmation that the squad announced in an hour will contain the youngster.
Hearing Anjorin makes the bench tonight. Broja could too after training with the first team but no confirmation yet. #CFC

Anjorin’s recent good form with the youth sides has put him at the front of the queue for minutes, behind perhaps only Billy Gilmour on the youth academy production line.
Both could see some minutes tonight – we certainly hope so. With our squad stretched thin at the moment, they will never have a better chance to force their way into the side.
Armando Broja was also expected to get the nod to at least be in the squad tonight, but his status seems less certain. We suspect he will make the bench however, given private indications, and the fact he too was absent last night.
