After waiting almost two weeks to play the first official pre-season match of the summer, Chelsea are wasting no time to play the second. Having flowing to Singapore immediately after Saturday’s 3-0 win over Arsenal, Chelsea are set to take on the ever-illustrious Bayern Munich and their lovely manager Carlo Ancelotti.
The Blues will be bolstered by new arrival Álvaro Morata for this game, but will be without Pedro, who suffered a concussion and facial injuries after being punched-out by Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina. Pedro has returned to London for further treatment and is not expected back until next week at the earliest.
Meanwhile, young Charly Musonda continues to battle a muscle injury of unknown severity and he’s unlikely to be available for this game once again. Given the reduced numbers Chelsea are operating with at his position at the moment, with both Hazard and Pedro injured, this is truly the worst timing for young Charly Jr.
Chelsea started with the strongest possible lineup on Saturday. Will we do the same or is it time for a bit of rotation?
