The Chelsea team news is finally in and there are starts for Werner and Ziyech. Clarke-Salter and Christensen at the back.
A small number of home fans will be allowed in to watch the game as part of a government-backed trial to begin the process of allowing supporters back into stadiums. The game will be shown via a single-camera output so may not appear as optimised as other regular streamed games.
This means the first outing in a Blues shirt for newly signed attacking duo Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech while New signings like Ben Chiwell, Malang Sarr, Xavier Mbuyamba and THIAGO Silva could miss today’s pre-season game.
Today will not be the first time Chelsea arrive at Brighton’s Amex Stadium for a pre-season match. 8 years ago, the blues played a preseason match with Brighton after being crowned European champion.
Chelsea line-up: Kepa; James, Clarke-Salter, Christensen, Alonso; Kante, Kovacic; Ziyech, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi; Werner.
It will be the first time that the Blues take to the pitch since the end of the 2019/20 season, nearly three weeks ago.
