There will be a few familiar faces back at Stamford Bridge tonight but Chelsea look set to prove too strong for Frank Lampard and his Derby side.
Chelsea to win and both to score @ 31/20
The Rams beat Manchester United on penalties in the last round and Lampard has described this draw at his former club as ‘fate’.
Chelsea have also made what has been described as a ‘classy’ gesture to allow youngsters Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori to play against their parent club.
Mount is a doubt but Harry Wilson is another who could take the headlines after a glorious free-kick at Old Trafford.
However, Chelsea’s second-string includes the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and World Cup winners Cesc Fabregas and Olivier Giroud.
Being able to keep that kind of quality in reserve is a sign of how good Maurizio Sarri’s squad is and they should have too much in an open and entertaining game.
West Ham to win @ 9/5
Injuries are troubling West Ham at the moment but they can make the most of a Tottenham team who had to play on Monday.
Manuel Pellegrini has highlighted the EFL Cup as an avenue for silverware and says his side have been working hard to ensure they are ready for tonight.
With Mauricio Pochettino likely to field a mostly unrecognisable XI, a Hammers win looks a fantastic price.
