Chelsea face Brighton at the Amex Stadium in just under an hour, and the teams are in!
It’s the first game of preseason for both teams, just a couple of weeks after last season ended. To make things even stranger, the two sides face each other in the opening game of the 20/21 season in just two weeks.
That will be a very different game, with very different teams however. Chelsea still have a lot of players in coronavirus isolation and new signings not yet ready to play.
But the good news is that Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, who we’ve been excited to see since they signed, are in the mix. Kepa plays in goal… we’re not sure what that means just yet, but it’s not like there are a huge number of other options in the squad at the moment.
Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Brighton (kick off at 15:00 pm GMT)
