Chelsea boss Lampard: Chilwell and Thiago Silva will face Barnsley

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says Thiago Silva is in the squad for tomorrow's Carabao Cup clash with Barnsley.

Willy Caballero will also start in goal.

"Thiago Silva is in the squad for tomorrow," said Lampard. "He's getting fit so I'll make a decision on how many minutes he may get during the game depending on what's best for him.

"Ben Chilwell is also in the squad, while Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech are getting closer as well.

"The decision on Willy Caballero was made before Liverpool and it was a decision I made a lot in cup competitions last year. Willy trains brilliantly throughout the year and deserves these opportunities."
