Chelsea boss Potter adds Humphreys to traveling squad for Man City

Bashir Humphreys is traveling with Chelsea to Manchester City for tonight’s Carabao Cup tie.

Chelsea boss Graham Potter has turned to players from the Development Squad and confirmed that midfielder Lewis Hall, who made his debut last season against Chesterfield, and winger Omari Hutchinson are in the group that is travelling up to Manchester this afternoon.

“He’s [Hutchinson] in the squad, Lewis Hall is in the squad,” Potter said: “They’ve impressed, They’ve been training with us for a while now, and we’ve got some good quality young players we just need to nurture and take the right steps with. They will be in the squad and involved.”

Football.london says Humphreys is also in the travelling party, although it’s not yet clear if he’ll be in the matchday squad for the game.

The centre-back joined the Blues as an under-15 from Reading and has captained the Development Squad on several occasions over the past two seasons.
