Preseason friendly number two, supporting a charitable cause and mental health awareness as well!

The preparations for the new season are now in full swing, so we should be getting a more first-team look, for both sides. Or in Chelsea’s case, just a deluge of attacking players. Pulisic and Hudson-Odoi wing-backs, Kova-RLC pivot! Certainly fitness first!
