Graham Potter will surely ring the changes for tomorrow’s League Cup match with Manchester City.

A tiring run of Premier League and Champions League fixtures have tested the first team squad to the limit, with results beginning to take the brunt of things.

With one Premier League match left before the international break against in form Newcastle, there will be a real hope that they can leave some sort of impression before the World Cup.

With that being said, here is the Chelsea Chronicle’s rotated side for tomorrow night.

GK and Defence

Potter confirmed Kepa Arrizabalaga remained injured, so Edouard Mendy will get another chance to impress the new manager.

Cesar Azpilicueta will continue in a defensive looking back four, in the absence of Reece James.

Alongside the captain will be the seemingly irreplaceable Trevoh Chalobah, who has played every minute since Wesley Fofana fell to injury.

Kalidou Koulibaly will return to the starting line-up, after missing the defeat to Arsenal.

Marc Cucurella will be at left-back, and will be desperate to put together some form in Blue.

After an impressive display in his debut, Denis Zakaria will be handed another opportunity to impress at the Etihad.

The midfield will bring Potter the opportunity to hand out his first academy appearance, with Lewis Hall given the opportunity to impress.

Mason Mount will be handed a rest, leaving Conor Gallagher another opportunity to feature in his favoured position.

With him being offered very few minutes under Potter so far, Hakim Ziyech will be given a chance to impress from the start tomorrow.

Christian Pulisic will start on the opposite wing, with academy star Omari Hutchinson likely to replace one of the two at some point.

Up front, Armando Broja will be handed just his second start of his Chelsea career.
