Chelsea vs. Fiorentina, Preseason friendly: Confirmed lineups

WAGNH's 2015/16 Season Preview

Be sure to tune in to Chelsea TV early to catch the introductions and the festivities and whatnot.  The match itself starts at the top of the hour.


Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Asmir Begovic | Bertrand Traore, John Terry, Kurt Zouma, Ola Aina | Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mikel | Victor Moses, Oscar, Juan Cuadrado | Radamel Falcao

Substitutes from: Thibaut Courtois, Jamal Blackman, Branislav Ivanovic, Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas, Ramires, Eden Hazard, Willian, Loic Remy

Fiorentina starting lineup (3-4-2-1):
Luigi Sepe | Nenad Tomovic, Facundo Roncaglia, Gonzalo Rodriguez | Marcos Alonso, Mario Suarez, Matias Vecino, Gilberto | Ante Rebic, Matias Fernandez | Khouma Babacar

Substitutes from: Luca Lezzerini, Milan Badelj, Ricardo Bagadur, Nicolo Fazzi, Josip Ilicic, Joaquin, Borja Valero, Filippo Bernardeschi, Guiseppe Rossi, Ahmed Hegazi, Ciprian Tatarusanu, Manuel Pasqual


If you were hankering for a fun, weird, new lineup, today is your day.  There's Cuadrado at right back (which is where he started his career), RLC and Traore getting starts, and two goalkeepers on the bench.  Sadly, no sign of Kenedy, at least not according to Chelsea Twitter.

At least that's what we thought at first, but then it turned out that Traore was left back (huh?) and Cuadrado was the right wing.  So, yeah.
