How Chelsea could line up against Barnsley in Carabao Cup TONIGHT with Thiago Silva making debut alongside Ben Chilwell

CHELSEA will be looking to put their defeat to Liverpool behind them when they face Barnsley.

The Blues host the Championship side in the third-round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Frank Lampard looks set to change up his squad after their disastrous display against Liverpool.

Starting from the back, Willy Caballero will start in goal instead of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

At the back, Thiago Silva could make his debut for the club at the heart of the defence.

The 35-year-old is yet to feature for the club since his free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain in August.

Ahead of the match, Lampard said: “We’ll see with Thiago because Thiago’s not coming back off an injury, he’s just getting fit.”

Callum Hudson-Odoi – who is attracting interest from Bayern Munich, Juventus and RB Leipzig – is likely to start out wide.

Tammy Abraham, who scored 15 league goals last season, will lead the line with Mason Mount to his left.

Barnsley have lost their last two Championship matches, going down 2-0 at Reading on Saturday after losing 1-0 at home to Luton.
