This pre-season would be make-or-break for some players in the Chelsea squad.
With the expected arrival of Frank Lampard as the new Chelsea boss, several players will be looking to impress the Chelsea legend during preseason.
Here are 7 Chelsea players with points to prove this summer:
1. Michy Batshuayi
It hasn’t really worked out for the Belgian at Chelsea since arriving from Marseille in the summer of 2016. Batshuayi has had loan spells with three different clubs ( Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace) in the last two seasons and will be hoping to prove to Frank Lampard during preseason that he can be Chelsea’s main striker next season.
2. Tammy Abraham
The 21 year old striker impressed on loan at Aston Villa last season, helping them secure promotion to the Premier League with 26 goals in the Championship.
Chelsea lacked a clinical striker last season and Abraham will be hoping to prove to Lampard that he can lead the line for Chelsea next season.
3. Danny Drinkwater
Danny Drinkwater endured a terrible season under Maurizio Sarri as he failed to make a competitive appearance for the Blues last season. Drinkwater will need to prove to Lampard during preseason that he can be a part of his team.
4. Marcos Alonso
Marcos Alonso lost his place in the starting XI towards the end of last season with Maurizio Sarri opting to start Emerson Palmieri in the Europa League final.
