Chelsea begin their domestic cup run on Wednesday as they host Barnsley in the Carabao Cup third round.
Frank Lampard’s team have won one and lost one so far in the Premier League, as he looks to fully integrate his new signings and build a team capable of competing for major honours.
Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is soon to be the latest addition to the squad, but there could be debutants here including Thiago Silva.
Barnsley have struggled at the start of the new season in the Championship, losing twice in succession either side of a cup win against Middlesbrough.
Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match.
When is it?
The game kicks off at Stamford Bridge in London on 23 September at 7:45pm.
How can I watch it?
The game will be streamed live on carabaocup.live for those who purchase a match pass.
Chelsea have Thiago Silva in the squad, as is Ben Chilwell, but Hakim Ziyech will still have to wait for his debut. Christensen is suspended and Christian Pulisic is injured.
Barnsley saw two players red-carded at the weekend so both Mads Anderson and Michal Helik are suspended for this encounter.
Chelsea: Caballero; Azpilicueta, Silva, Tomori, Alonso; Barkley, Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic; Hudson-Odoi, Havertz, Werner.
Barnsley: Collins; Sollbauer, Halme, Williams; Ludewig, Mowatt, Styles, Ritzmaier; Thomas, Schmidt, Frieser.
Even with rotation and an unfamiliar lineup, Chelsea’s squad depth should be far too strong for a side who look like struggling in the Championship again. Chelsea 2-0 Barnsley
