Predicted Chelsea XI to play Derby County - Strong team for Blues

Derby County West Stand

Here is the possible Chelsea side to take on Derby in the League Cup.

Chelsea have a brief rest from the Premier League this week when they take on Derby County in the quarter-finals of the League Cup.

The Blues are favourites to win the tournament but they need to be at the top of their game against a side, which has been very strong in the Championship so far this season.

Jose Mourinho is likely to make a number of changes for the match and it’s a great chance for any younger or fringe players coming into the side to impress and lay down a claim for a place in the team for the semi-finals.

Chelsea are looking strong and confident on all fronts so far this season, with the incentive to win another piece of silverware something that Mourinho is likely to take very seriously.

Here is the potential side Mourinho could go with for the match.

Chelsea: Cech, Christensen, Cahill, Zouma, Azpilicueta, Schurrle, Mikel, Ramires, Salah, Remy
