Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is reportedly set to continue his youth policy at the club by giving debuts to three young players against Grimsby on Wednesday in the League Cup.
Three Chelsea youngsters were absent from Chelsea’s U23 team that played against Bristol Rovers in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday, which suggests they could be part of the squad that would play Grimsby on Wednesday.
17 year old Faustino Anjorin was omitted from the team that played against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night, confirming earlier reports that he was set to make his Chelsea debut against Grimsby on Wednesday.
17 year old Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen could also make his Chelsea debut against Grimsby after he was also left out for the U23 game against Bristol Rovers.
Reece James, who spent last season on loan at Wigan in the Championship, is also expected to make his Chelsea debut on Wednesday.
Billy Gilmour, who made his debut against Sheffield United, is also expected to be part of the squad for the game against Grimsby after he was left out of the U23 team that played Bristol Rovers on Tuesday.
