MK Dons have made four changes to their starting line-up ahead of the Checkatrade Trophy match with the Chelsea U21’s.

The players rotated into the starting line-up are Wieger Sietsma, Joe Walsh, Robbie Muirhead and Brandon Thomas-Asante.

Ed Upson, Chuks Aneke and Lee Nicholls all drop to the bench, while Ethan Ebanks-Landell is not included in the 18.

The remainder of the starting line-up is the same side that started the Dons’ 4-1 victory over Maidstone United in the FA Cup Second Round on Saturday.

The Dons team take on a Chelsea U21 side that features a number of highly rated talents, including Charly Musonda, Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi, as well as the duo of Michy Batshuayi and Kenedy, who have played Premier League football for the Chelsea first team.

Robbie Neilson’s side booked their passage by winning a group featuring Oxford United, Stevenage and the Brighton Academy, while Chelsea progressed by coming second in a group featuring Yeovil, Exeter and Plymouth.

MK Dons starting 11: Sietsma, Williams, Wootton, Walsh, Golbourne, Ariyibi, McGrandles, Nesbitt, Thomas-Asante, Muirhead, Seager
