Confirmed: Chelsea lineup v Walsall

Chelsea will take on Walsall away from home in the third round of the League Cup this evening…

Chelsea will be looking to progress to the fourth round of the League Cup this evening when they take on Walsall away from home.

The Blues will be huge favourites to win against the League One outfit at the Bescot Stadium.

Jose Mourinho’s side did not start the 2015-16 season well, but they have won their last two competitive games and appear to have got their form back.

Chelsea defeated Maccabi Tel Aviv 4-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League Group G last week and got the better of London rivals Arsenal 2-0 at home in the Premier League on Saturday.

However, Mourinho’s side should not get complacent, as League One team Walsall will be determined to stage an upset this evening.

Dean Smith’s side have been playing well this season and find themselves second in the league table with 17 points from eight matches, just a point behind leaders Burton Albion.

This is how Chelsea will line up against Walsall at the Bescot Stadium:

Chelsea XI: Begovic, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Baba Rahman, Ramires, Mikel, Remy, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Falcao

Subs: Blackman, Djilobodji, Aina, Matic, Traore, Hazard, Pedro
