Chelsea begin their campaign with a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United but how will they line-up?
Frank Lampard will be without quite a chunk of his key players for his Premier league debut as a manager.
Antonio Rudiger, Willian and Callum Hudson-Odoi are all recovering from injuries while N’golo Kante is a huge doubt for the game.
Meanwhile, Reece James and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are no spared from injuries as well. They won’t be part of today’s game.
The Blues had a pre-season of ups and downs but Lampard appears very optimistic that his players will do well for the season.
They were unable to sign new players but the former Chelsea player has begun integrating his youth set-up into the senior team of the side.
With David Luiz now an Arsenal player, Kurt Zouma will likely get game time along Andreas Christensen at the heart of defense.
Ceaser Azipilicueta will captain the side as the right full back while Emerson Palmieri is expected to play as the left full back.
Despite Kante’s injury, Lampard has options to choose from in midfield.
Tammy Abraham will likely lead the attack for the Blues ahead of Olivier Giroud, with Pedro and Pulisic on the flank.
Chelsea predicted line-up vs Manchester United – Premier League
(4-2-3-1): Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Zouma, Emerson; Jorginho, Kovacic; Pedro, Mount, Pulisic; Abraham
