Frank Lampard has named a strong side for the game against Borussia Monchengladbach; it will be the team’s final pre-season game of the summer before the season’s opener on August 11.
See the lineup below:
Chelsea’s starting XI: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen, Emerson, Kovacic, Jorginho, Mount, Pedro, Abraham, Pulisic.
Subs: Caballero, Ziger, Zappacosta, Tomori, Luiz, Alonso, Kenedy, Kante, Barkley, Giroud.
The Blues beat RB Salzburg in our last friendly 5-3, with goals coming from Ross Barkley, Pedro, Michy Batshuayi and a Christian Pulisic double, but the defence was again put to the test in a 5-3 victory.
Kante has finally made a return and will start from the bench.
