Welcome to matchday two of preseason, and this time it’s the familiar prospect of testing ourselves against Brighton that awaits us. Of course, it’s still just preseason so the result is secondary ... mostly.
Pochettino has opted for a few more familiar faces as well for this one.
No Caicedo for Brighton. Colwill starts for Chelsea.
