This Wednesday evening, Chelsea welcome Grimsby Town, to Stamford Bridge, for a Carabao Cup 3rd round tie.

In a little over a week, Chelsea will be playing their third home fixture, hopefully, after losing the previous two, against Liverpool (Premier League) and Valencia (Champions League), Chelsea will get back to winning ways, indeed, Frank Lampard, after four fixtures in all competitions at Stamford Bridge, Frank will get his much-needed first home victory.

As is often the case in the early stages of the Carabao Cup, the tie has a real David against Goliath feel with Grimsby Town, a League Two side, fulfilling the David role.

As is often the norm in the Carabao Cup, a competition we reached the final of last season before losing to Manchester City, Premier League clubs tend to field weakened sides, with young talent and squad fringe players are given a chance to shine.

With that being the case, it makes our regular feature a hard task, namely predicting the starting eleven that Frank will select for this intriguing tie.

But, then again, can you rise above all others and get your prediction 100% right?

Simply drop the starting eleven you predict Frank will go with in the comment facility beneath this article.

  • Willy, Maatsen, Zouma, Tomori, James, Kante, Barkley, Jorghino, Odoi, Pulisic, Batman.
    Some explanation: Kante needs more game time for fitness
    Mount needs proper healing, must rest
    Azpi needs rest as well
    Bench: Giroud, Kova, Alonso, Azpi, academy guys

  • In a 4-2-3-1 formation
    Cabalero
    R.james zouma guehi alonso
    Jorginho gilmor
    Odoi barkley pulisic
    Batshuayi
    R.james is back and been trainiing no perfect time to introduce him than now, same with odoi. Pulisic must have to start these game, with either batshuayi or giroud, as they lack game time and are 100 percent fit, jorginho can General the team though he needs rest but we are short of replacements, barkley an opportunity to prove to the fans he still has that hunger with an excellent performance nothing less
