Brentford vs Chelsea: Chelsea manager calls up 12 players from the academy ahead of EFL cup clash



Without much doubts, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchelwill be looking to make some changes to his side for their next match after a recent tight schedule.

The Blues will be seeking qualifications into the next round of the English Football League when they make the trip to battle Brentford on Wednesday night.

And having played on Sunday, manager Thomas Tuchel will be looking to change his starting eleven when they face Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium.

And ahead of that EFL clash, Chelsea manager is set to be without the services of several first-team players including Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ben Chilwell and Romelu Lukaku.

As a result of that, Thomas Tuchel has called up 12 players from the Chelsea academy in order to ease the stress on the first-team players during this festive period.

Do remember that the first-team squad has been ravaged by various Covid-19 cases and injuries and Thomas Tuchel has no other options than to turn to his youth players.

And now, Thomas Tuchel has called up the likes of Teddy Sharman-Lowe, Xavier Simons, Xavier Mbuyamba, Dion Rankine, Josh Brooking and Alfie Gilchrist to train with the first-team squad earlier in the week.


Coupled with those, Thomas Tuchel has also invited others like Bryan Fiabema, Jay Wareham, Lewis Hall, Harvey Vale, Joe Haigh and Lewis Baker to provide cover for the first-team squad this week.

It is believed that manager Thomas Tuchel will be banking on these players to turn up and fight for their place in the first-team as the 2021/2022 season goes on.

That said, we all expect a different Chelsea side to take to the pitch when the Blues go all out to battle Brentford in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night
