Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has resisted calls to start young winger Callum Hudson-Odoi in the League Cup final against Manchester City, with Gonzalo Higuain also among the substitutes at Wembley.

Hudson-Odoi, who had a move to Bayern Munich blocked by his club in January, impressed in the midweek Europa League win over Malmo.

Eden Hazard, Pedro and Willian lead the line instead, with the Blues hoping to banish memories of their painful 6-0 defeat to City earlier in February.
