Lampard will be tempted to keep a similar team to Thursday night, but the Blues do have a London derby against West Ham in midweek to consider, so there may be rotation.

Tammy Abraham could be handed a start, after the England striker was brought off the bench against City, whilst Willy Caballero may replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.

In midfield, there is intense competition for places and Lampard may use the cup tie as an opportunity to rest N’Golo Kante against his former side, and give minutes to Billy Gilmour and Jorginho.
