Omari Hutchinson could be in line to make his senior Chelsea debut against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

According to The Athletic, the Blues have asked Hutchinson not to report for international duty with Jamaica this week, which would allow him to be potentially picked by Graham Potter.

Jamaica face Cameron on the same day as the cup clash with City.

Hutchinson earned a first international cap earlier in the year. To make a second would be another major step forward in his career.

However, possibly facing Pep Guardiola’s gargantuan team certainly trumps that.

Potter and his opposite number are expected to rotate their respective sides at the Etihad in a few days.

Both managers have the luxury of depth to dip into, although Chelsea’s long injury list will force Potter’s hand somewhat.

Hutchinson is a real handful

With several key personnel already missing, the Blues boss might save those still fit in favour of the youth contingent.

Step forward Hutchinson, who has been a great addition to the development set-up since signing from Arsenal in July.

He has already scored or assisted 12 times this season, and made the bench for Chelsea’s 4-1 Premier League defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.

So why not give the 19-year-old a chance against the reigning English champions?

After all, he can’t do much worse than the XI who miserably trudged through the Arsenal fixture yesterday.

Plus, Hutchinson has the approval of footballing icon Pele.

What more evidence does Potter need?!
