Chelsea Women join the Women’s League Cup fray in the competition’s quarterfinal, as a “reward” for the UEFA Women’s Champions League group stage participation. Sunderland are our first rivals in the cup this season thanks to a technicality. But that shouldn’t take away from them the massive feat which is being part of the League Cup’s last eight.

Still the Blues are facing a Women’s Championship side which were beaten 7-0 by Aston Villa on the pitch. No wonder manager Emma Hayes opted to rotate her starting lineup today, in light of more important games before the international break at the end of the month.

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1?):
Musovic | Périsset, Buchanan, Mjelde, Nüsken | Ingle (c), Cankovic | Hamano, Kirby, Beever-Jones | Fishel

Substitutes from: Hampton, Carter, James, Reiten, Lawrence, Kaneryd, Charles, Cuthbert, Ramírez

Sunderland starting eleven:
Moan | Brown, Goddard, Westrup (c), McCatty, Ede, Fenton, Rouse, Dear, Scarr, Ejupi

Substitutes from: Borthwick, McInnes, McAteer, Watson, Jones, Corbyn, West, Boothroyd
