When we drew Wolverhampton at home, we knew that the Capital One cup tie at Stamford Bridge would fall during the week of September 24th. Chelsea FC have announced the details today on their official website, so we'll give them to you here. Chelsea will welcome the championship side in to Stamford Bridge on the evening of September 25th. The tie will kick off at 19:45 BST, and no details on television coverage have been announced as of yet. Sometimes these early round League Cup games can be difficult if not impossible to find, so there's no guarantee that you'll have coverage.

Chelsea have made a habit over the last few years of using the League Cup to break in young players, and I have a hard time believing that this season will be any different. Players like Cesar Azpilicueta, Oscar, Lucas Piazon, and Patrick Bamford may all find themselves featuring in this one. It's also likely to be one of the few chances that Petr Cech will get to be a healthy scratch on the season. So who would you all choose for this one, Henrique Hilario or Ross Turnbull?
