All the information you need ahead of our last Asian friendly conveniently located in one post

Chelsea will play their final game of their 2013 Asian tour in under 24 hours, before heading to a different continent for more friendlies against better known competition. Here's what you need to know if you're planning to watch the game.

Date/Time: Thursday 25 July, 20:30 local time, 14:30 BST, 9:30 am EST

Venue/Location: Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Jakarta, Indonesia

Television Information: UK viewers continue to be out of luck, and will need to rely on streaming the game live. The twelve US residents who still have access to GolTV will be able to see the game live, while all other American viewers will be stuck with Chelsea TV's service. Those of you not at the game in Indonesia can see the game on Nexmedia, MNC TV, and MNC Sports 2, and those of you elsewhere can find your local listings here.

Streaming: As with the past two friendlies, Chelsea TV will be streaming the game both live and on delay depending on where you're watching from. If anyone from the club is currently reading this, an 'on-demand' feature would be an absolutely fantastic addition for subscribers.

Chelsea Squad News: Let's turn it over to Jose Mourinho for this one:

'The Indonesian team will play with big motivation and I am going to use two teams, 45 minutes for each player like in Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, because of our objective is to give players minutes and play the best we can at this moment.'

Kevin De Bruyne's injury turned out to be less serious than many of us had feared, but he still won't rejoin the squad until they touch down in the United States. Josh McEachran may well be fit enough to play a full 45 minutes after his cameo during the last friendly.

Frank Lampard is now training again, and given his legend status, a several minute cameo to make the fans happy would not be at all surprising. I'd be surprised to see him get as many minutes as McEachran got on the weekend though, as there's just very little reason to risk injury at this point.

Indonesia Squad News: As with the past two opponents, I know absolutely nothing about the opposition that we're about to face. Luckily I read the Chelsea website primer on the Indonesia XI, and now I'm slightly less ignorant than I was before.

The Chelsea squad will likely be trimmed down a little following this game, especially with the return of David Luiz, Oscar, Kenneth Omeruo (potentially), John Obi Mikel, Juan Mata, Fernando Torres, and Cesar Azpilicueta. We'll probably hear some loan destinations announced before the next contest, and it will probably be your last chance to see guys like Lucas Piazon and Wallace in Chelsea colors until the 2014 preseason gets underway.
