John Terry returns and Kenedy makes his full Chelsea debut in tonight’s League Cup third-round clash at Walsall.
Brazilian youngster Kenedy has been named in the starting line-up by boss Jose Mourinho along with fellow recent signing Baba Rahman.
As expected, Terry has been recalled – the skipper partners Gary Cahill at the back – and there is also a starting place for John Mikel Obi. Radamel Falcao and Loic Remy are both included as well.
Defender Ola Aina, 18, is among the Blues substitutes, as are Eden Hazard, Pedro and Nemanja Matic.
Chelsea: Begovic, Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Baba, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Ramires, Kenedy, Remy, Falcao.
Subs: Blackman, Hazard, Traore, Pedro, Matic, Aina, Djilobodji.
