CHE vs BAR Dream11 Prediction: The Blues will be hoping to seal a place in the English League Cup fourth round when they welcome Barnsley to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. Chelsea entered the 2020/21 season full of hope and promise after a busy summer transfer window, wherein they have bought a number of top class players. The Blues made a fine start to their Premier League campaign, dispatching Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1. This past weekend, though, Frank Lampard & co. were brought right back down to earth following their 2-0 loss to Liverpool. For Barnsley, on the other hand, 2020-21 has thus far been a tale of two competitions. While in the Carabao Cup, the Tykes have a perfect record after beating Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough in the first two rounds, their fortunes have been polar opposite in the Championship, going down to Luton Town and Reading without even managing to find the back of the net.

CHE vs BAR Dream11 Team Prediction
Chelsea Town Team News
Apart from their 1-3 win on the road in their opening PL match this season with Brighton, the Blues have won none of their last five clashes across all major competitions. Frank Lampard will have a slightly easy job in picking up his team from the loss since they are facing a Championship side. But enjoys the home ground advantage in the game. With just two losses in their last ten home matches, they pose a huge threat for the visitors. Besides, five of their last six wins at home came along with a clean sheet in each.
Injury update, unavailability
Chelsea are expected to be without the services of Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva through injury, while Andreas Christensen is suspended.
CHE Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Willy Caballero, Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Fikayo Tomori, Emerson Palmieri, Jorginho, Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi
Subs (probable): Kante, Chilwell, Havertz
Barnsley Team News
Barnsley nearly reached the bottom of the Championship table last season at the 21st spot. Two of their recent three matches across major contests in the schedule have ended in a defeat.

With their poor away form, it will be hard for the Tykes to hold their defense against a top tier side.
