League Cup quarter-final
7.45pm Wednesday

Chelsea are tailed off in the Premier League title race and face a tough Champions League tie against Barcelona, but Antonio Conte is still expected to shuffle the pack for this League Cup clash.

It is no surprise to see them at a short price to beat Bournemouth in their quarter-final but the visiting Cherries are unlikely to sit back.

Avoiding relegation will be a higher priority than cup success for Eddie Howe's side but he will still want to see a positive reaction to Sunday's 4-0 home thumping by Liverpool, so expect the visitors to go on the front foot.
