Chelsea face Bournemouth later today in our first official preseason game following a training match against Peterborough at Cobham and an in-house contest in Dublin last week.

The game against the Championship side can be viewed for free on Chelsea’s official app, The 5th Stand.

The kick-off time for the game is 7:45pm UK time.

N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Timo Werner, Kenedy, Antonio Rudiger, Kai Havertz and Kurt Zouma all returned to training on Saturday but it remains to be seen if the game will come too soon for them to accumulate their first competitive minutes of pre-season.

However, the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Marcos Alonso should all get another taste of match action, with Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi in particular having stood out in the two training games.
