Chelsea can overcome another hurdle in their quest for silverware this season if they can defeat Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals this evening.

The Blues welcome the Cherries to Stamford Bridge knowing victory will put them just 180 minutes of football away from a showpiece final at Wembley.
