Frank Lampard is ready to hand new goalkeeper Edouard Mendy his Chelsea debut against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup.

Mendy joined Chelsea for £22million from Rennes last Thursday and the Senegal international is in contention to start the fourth-round tie.

Ben Chilwell could make his first Chelsea start. The England left-back made his debut as a late substitute in the previous round against Barnsley last week and is stepping up his recovery from a heel injury.

Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech are closing in on a return to fitness but both remain sidelined, so Callum Hudson-Odoi is likely to get another opportunity to impress after doing well off the bench against West Brom.

Lampard will decide whether to give Thiago Silva more action as he builds up his fitness but three games in a week may prove too much for the veteran Brazilian.

Predicted Chelsea XI vs Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Tomori, Chilwell; Barkley, Kovacic; Hudson-Odoi, Havertz, Mount; Abraham.
