After the disappointment of losing their 100 per cent record under Maurizio Sarri on Sunday, Chelsea can get back to winning ways – and make a statement – when they face Liverpool in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

It may mean Sarri, a coach famed for his lack of rotation, names another strong side. While the likes of Ross Barkley and Andreas Christensen may be handed a rare starts, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Eden Hazard, Jorginho and N’Golo Kanté in the side.
