Chelsea vs Blackburn Prediction: Team News, Line-Ups, & Form
Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is back into the spotlight once again after his team succumbed to a toothless 2-0 loss against Brentford during the weekend. Chelsea are once again likely to find it difficult at Stamford Bridge, as Blackburn may go with a defensive approach. There are several injury problems to prevent Pochettino from rotating the squad. Ben Chilwell Wesley Fofana, Christopher Nkunku, Roméo Lavia, Trevoh Chalobah, and Carney Chukwuemeka are on the treatment table.
Sánchez, Cucurella, Colwill, Disasi, Maaten, Gallagher, Caicedo, Ugochukwu, Palmer, Maatsen, Jackson
Blackburn are stuck in the mid-table spots of the Championship table. More than progressing further in the EFL Cup, Blackburn will be targeting promotion next season. The Lancashire outfit have lost four out of the recent five trips to Stamford Bridge. There are no injury problems for Blackburn.

Player to Watch: Nicolas Jackson
Nicolas Jackson was very poor in the recent loss against Brentford as he received little in the way of service from his teammates. Even in situations where the midfielders were able to find Jackson, the striker was pretty disappointing in terms of his touch and finishing skills. Against the Championship team, however, Jackson’s probability of scoring is significantly better.
