Chelsea will finish our pre-season tour of Japan with a game against Barcelona on Tuesday.

In Lampard’s first three games in charge, the Blues drew 1-1 against Bohemians, beat St Patrick’s 4-0 and lost 1-0 to Kawasaki Frontale.

Lampard will be hoping to end his pre-season tour of Japan with a win against Barcelona.

Ahead of the game between Chelsea and Barcelona on Tuesday, the Spanish champions will be without Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho, Arthur and Arturo Vidal due to their involvement in the 2019 Copa America.

However, all their summer arrivals Neto, Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann will be available to play against Chelsea.

Below is the Barcelona squad to face Chelsea:

Goalkeepers: Ter Stegen, Neto, Iñaki Pena.

Defenders: Semedo, Pique, Todibo, Lenglet, Alba, Roberto, Umtiti, Araujo, Guillem.

Midfielders: Rakitic, Busquets, Rafinha, Alena, De Jong, O. Busquets, Monchu, Collado, Puig.

Forwards: Dembele, Malcom, Griezmann, Perez, Abe.

Willian is unavailable for the game due to his involvement with Brazil in the Copa America while Kepa Arrizabalaga and Tammy Abraham are available for the Blues after they missed the 1-0 loss to Kawasaki Frontale on Friday due to illness.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted he’s looking forward to the game against Barcelona on Tuesday.

“Barcelona are a team that I have some great memories of playing against, some good and some bad,” Lampard said.

“I have always had a huge respect for them because when you play against Barcelona you know you are playing against, they say, more than a club, and I agree with that. We are very proud to be here to play this match.

“Everybody has been very friendly, very respectful and we really appreciate that. When we come to Japan, the welcome we get is unforgettable.”
