Chelsea have enjoyed a favourable run in the competition so far. In the last round they faced an out of sorts Bolton and this time they are pitted against league two opponents.
While Jose Mourinho has bigger fish to fry this season the league and UCL a priority, the Portuguese manager will no doubt hope his fringe players can lead the club to the latter stages of the competition and keep the momentum going.
Those fringe players are likely to include world cup winner Andre Schurrle, promising defender Kurt Zouma, former Basle winger Mo Salah, left back Nathan Ake and experienced goal keeper Petr Cech.
Didier Drogba could also be involved with Diego Costa unlikely to be risked and Loic Remy injured. The Ivory Coast with 2 goals in his last two games has shown that he has plenty to offer at this level and while a third game in a week might be tough for the veteran the return of Costa should mean a rest is coming his way.
While on paper Shrewsbury would appear to be cannon fodder, they have more than enough to make life difficult for their wealthy rivals. The club have won 9 out of their 10 home games this season in all competitions and have already knocked out Leicester and Norwich in this year’s competition.
