Chelsea fans will get their first taste of what a Frank Lampard led-Blues side looks like in tonight’s friendly clash with Irish side Bohemians, as well as what a number of fringe players can do to stake their claim for the upcoming season.
The predicted Chelsea line-up vs Bohemians is predicted to feature a number of players who may well have thought their future at the club was up, with Danny Drinkwater, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Michy Batshuayi and Kurt Zouma all to feature.
Players such as N’Golo Kante and Mason Mount will likely be part of the squad in Ireland, but may or may not feature due to returning late to training following international squad commitments in the postseason.
More in the way of Chelsea team news is that Frank Lampard has promised exciting attacking football this season, so it’s tipped that the former midfielder will unleash a 4-3-2-1 formation tonight.
Kick-off for Chelsea vs Bohemians is at 19:45 (UK), taking place in Dublin, Ireland.
