Meanwhile, Chelsea have no intention of allowing the youngsters play a part for Derby County in the Carabao Cup game.
The youngsters have impressed at Derby under Frank Lampard since they made the loan move.
They’ll be available for the clash, like they were in the last round when they eliminated Manchester United at Old Trafford on penalties after a 2 all draw at full time.
According to the report from ESPN, Chelsea ensure that players who leave the club on loan have a clause in their contract that bars them from playing against their parent club.
Therefore, if the loanee’s club gets drawn against Chelsea in a cup competition, they are effectively ineligible to play the game.
