Chelsea will be looking to avoid an upset tonight when they host Bolton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge in the third round of the League Cup.
The Blues lost their 100% record in the Premier League at the weekend when they played out a 1-1 draw with defending English champions Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
Jose Mourinho’s side will be keen to return to winning ways and will be favourites heading into the match.
The Blues are unlikely to take the League Cup as seriously as the Premier League and the Champions League, but the London giants will not still want to slip up against a team struggling in the Championship at the moment.
Bolton, once a Premier League outfit, are currently just a place above the relegation zone with just five points from eight matches.
However, Dougie Freedman’s players will be determined to stage an upset tonight and get the better of the 2012 Champions League winners.
Here is how Chelsea and Bolton will line up tonight:
