Chelsea name a mixed team to face Derby County in the Carabao Cup as Frank Lampard returns to his old stomping ground.

The Blues beat Burnley 4-0 on Sunday and they make eight changes from that team as only N'Golo Kante, Willian and Alvaro Morata remain.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek partners Morata and Willian in attack whilst Cesc Fabregas and Mateo Kovacic make up the midfield.

Willy Caballero, Davide Zappacosta, Gary Cahill, Andreas Christensen and Emerson start in a changed back five.

Lampard starts both of his Chelsea loanees, Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount, as he looks to get one over his former club.


Chelsea - Caballero; Zappacosta, Cahill, Christensen, Emerson; Kante, Fabregas, Kovacic; Loftus-Cheek, Morata, Willian

Derby County - Carson; Bogle, Keogh, Tomori, Malone; Huddlestone, Mount; Wilson, Lawrence, Waghorn; Marriott

Elsewhere in the Carabao Cup Carl Jenkinson makes his first Arsenal appearance in 701 days as they face Blackpool at the Emirates.

He's part of a backline that features debutant Julio Pleguezuelo whilst talented youngster Emile Smith-Rowe starts in midfield.
