Chelsea have named their starting line-up for the Capital One Cup clash with Swindon Town.

After a surprise Champions League defeat to FC Basel last week, Chelsea can ill-afford a League Cup slip up tonight.

They face League One side Swindon town, currently placed 11th in the division in a tricky away tie, with added pressure due to the fact Mourinho won the trophy in his first season of his first spell at Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho's side bounced back from last week's defeat with a 2-0 win over Fulham at the weekend, and more rotation is in order tonight.

Schwarzer; Azpilicueta, D Luiz, Cahill, Bertrand; Essien (C), Van Ginkel; De Bruyne, Mata, Willian; Torres.

Subs: Blackman, Terry, Ramires, Baker, Schurrle, Ba, Eto’o.
