While the Blues are entering the knockout competition at the second stage, their visitors have already caused a major upset in the tournament, eliminating Coventry City in round one.

Owing to their humbling 12th-placed finish in the 2022-23 Premier League campaign, Chelsea are entering unfamiliar territory in the EFL Cup this week, taking part in the second round of the competition for the first time since the 2016-17 campaign.

Not since the 1995-96 edition have the Blues been eliminated from the League Cup in the second round – losing to Stoke City 1-0 over two legs that year – but their hopes of stardom were extinguished straight away last year, as they lost in the third round to Manchester City several month on from their penalty-shootout heartache against Liverpool in the 2022 final.

Unlike Chelsea, Wimbledon can proudly claim to be entering Wednesday’s contest having not lost a single game in the 2023-24 campaign so far, but they were denied a third successive win when recently-relegated Forest Green Rovers visited Plough Lane at the weekend.

James Ball’s header had Wimbledon in lead 10 minutes before the break, but veteran attacker Troy Deeney equalised for the visitors 15 minutes before the end.

Wimbledon pulled off one of the scalps of the EFL Cup first round, beating last year’s Championship playoff runners-up Coventry City 2-1 through an injury-time winner from Ryan McLean – as Johnnie Jackson’s side reached round two for just the third time in their history.

Only once have Wimbledon managed to progress further in the EFL Cup, but they were quickly beaten 3-0 by Arsenal in the 2021-22 third round.

Chelsea vs. AFC Wimbledon Head to head
