Chelsea take on Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup (League Cup) Quarter-Final at Stamford Bridge and an opportunity to take one step closer to the first silverware available this season. Should Maurizio Sarri start with a full strength team or make changes? 

Now it has to be said that Chelsea have always taken this competition seriously and I would expect them to do the same this evening. Jose Mourinho in his first season here in 2004 spoke of the importance of winning the competition as it gives the team confidence knowing that they can be successful with what they are trying to achieve at that moment. For Maurizio Sarri it's no different and having not won anything to date as a manager, it would a massive achievement and hopefully just the beginning.

Bournemouth come here looking to reach their first Semi-Final in their history and will be at full strength without question. Think back to the game in the Premier League much earlier in the season at Stamford Bridge, you will remember that on that day they caused us real problems and wasted some golden opportunities to score. We MUST ensure that we remain compact and tight at the back whoever starts the game.

So to the Chelsea team tonight and if I were in charge I would only make six changes to the team and formation this evening. I would change from the false-nine formation and start Olivier Giroud up front as the first change, I would rest Eden Hazard to the bench especially if he picked up a knock at the weekend and keep Willian alongside Pedro as part of our attacking three.

In midfield, I would bring in RLC and Ross Barkley in for Kovacic and Kante, with Cesc Fabregas in for Jorginho. I would then play Emerson ahead of Marcos Alonso and Willy Caballero in for Kepa Arizabalaga as my final change.

Starting eleven: 


Subs: Kepa, Alonso, Christensen, Kovacic, Jorginho, Hazard and Hudson-Odoi.
