Gonzalo Higuain makes his Chelsea debut after completing his loan move from Juventus. There are also starts for youngsters Ethan Ampadu and Callum Hudson-Odoi, who has reportedly submitted a transfer request to force a move to Bayern Munich.
Ampadu is expected to play as the deep-lying midfielder in Chelsea’s midfield three as Maurizio Sarri opts to rest Jorginho.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who hasn’t featured since picking up an injury in our third-round win over Nottingham Forest, is named among the substitutes. Both N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard aren’t included in the matchday squad.
Chelsea XI: Caballero, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Alonso, Ampadu, Barkley, Kovacic, Willian, Higuain, Hudson-Odoi
Subs: Arrizabalaga, David Luiz, Emerson, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Giroud
Sheffield Wednesday XI: Westwood, Palmer, Fox, Pelupessy, Fletcher, Bannan, Thorniley, Lees, Reach, Boyd, Hutchinson.
Subs: Dawson, Baker, Pudil, Matias, Nuhiu, Joao, Forestieri
Come on Chelsea!!!
