Chelsea face Premier league rivals, Manchester United, in the fourth round of the Carabao cup after a relatively easy 7-1 win over League two team, Grimsby Town on Wednesday night.
Manchester United managed to scrap past League One side Rochdale in a penalty shootout. It is the fourth successive season in which they face United in a cup competition.
The trio of Tammy Abraham, who is currently Chelsea top scorer, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori were rested during Wednesday’s game.
19-year-old Reece James set up Michy Batshuayi in the seventh minute before his superb cross was tapped in by Kurt Zouma.
He scored Chelsea’s fifth late in the second half before Batshuayi slotted home his second goal.
Chelsea’s Ross Barkley and Callum Hudson-Odoi also scored, while Grimsby’s Matt Green netted a volley.
