Chelsea v Grimsby Team News

MORE than 5000 Grimsby fans will head to Chelsea tonight hoping that the Mariners will give a credible account of themselves against Frank Lampard's side. The new Chelsea boss, who has yet to experience a home win, is expected to name a strong but much-changed team to take on Town.

Defender Harry Davis (shoulder) will face a late fitness test. Michael Jolley is limited in central defence as With Ludvig Öhman (groin) and Luke Waterfall (cup-tied) are ruled out. Mattie Pollock could be called on to deputise. Otherwise, Town have a full squad to pick from.

Chelsea's side is a big unknown. First teamers Emerson, Andreas Christensen, Tammy Abraham, Antonio Rudiger and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all doubtful or ruled out. Chelsea U-21s played last night so that limits Lampard's options for youth players. According to the Evening Standard, the line-up is predicted to be: Caballero; James, Zouma, Guehi, Alonso; Gilmour, Kovacic, Barkley; Pedro, Batshuayi, Pulisic.

Whatever the outcome Town will have a great evening to remember and hope that a giant-killing can take place. Grimsby have beaten Doncaster and Macclesfield to earn a tie at one of England's top sides.
