Time for preseason match number two, and the second trial for Maurizio Sarri’s system.

Chelsea haven’t had too much additional time to practice it since playing in Australia on Monday. The squad flew home on Tuesday, had the day off on Wednesday (with some going to Cesc Fabregas’s wedding celebration thing, too), trained on Thursday, then flew down to Nice on Friday. So that’s maybe three training sessions, perhaps four if they got one in this morning.

Not much, but better than nothing. Let’s see where we are now, fitness- and tactics-wise.

Here we go.

Bulka | Alonso, Ampadu, David Luiz, Zappacosta | Fabregas (c), Jorginho, Barkley | Hudson-Odoi, Morata, Pedro
