Chelsea will face Barnsley in the third round Carabao Cup game at Stamford Bridge.

Barnsley defeated Middlesborough 2-0 in the previous round to get to the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The third round Carabao game will be played at Stamford Bridge next Wednesday, and it will be the first meeting between the two sides in the League Cup. Chelsea last played Barnsley in the FA Cup in 2008, with Kayode Odejayi’s second-half header giving Barnsley a 1-0 win.

The game will most likely take place next Wednesday, September 23, as Chelsea have a game against Liverpool this Sunday.

Last season, the Blues were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Man United in the fifth round.
