Billy Gilmour and Timo Werner start while Kepa Arrizabalaga is set to make his 100th appearance for Chelsea when they face Morecambe in the FA Cup.

Frank Lampard has named a very strong lineup as Chelsea get ready to take on League Two side Morecambe FC in the third round of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge.

The most notable change in the lineup comes in goal where Kepa Arrizabalaga comes in for first-choice stopper Edouard Mendy. This will be the Spaniard’s 100th appearance for Chelsea. With Reece James injured, Cesar Azpilicueta keeps his place at right-back while Emerson Palmieri gets the nod on the left flank.

Kurt Zouma is retained in the side, with the Frenchman partnering Antonio Rudiger at the heart of the Blues’ defence against Morecambe. Fikayo Tomori is named among the substitutes.

Billy Gilmour gets the nod at the base of the three-man midfield, with N’Golo Kante injured. Mason Mount has been retained in the middle of the park, while Kai Havertz comes into the side as well. The attack bears a very strong look with Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Callum Hudson-Odoi starting.

Youngster Tino Anjorin has been named among the substitutes along with Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham.

Chelsea Starting Lineup: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger, Emerson, Havertz, Gilmour, Mount, Ziyech, Werner, Hudson-Odoi.
