The Mauricio Pochettino era at Chelsea begins and to say he has work to do is putting it very lightly indeed. The Blues crashed to a miserable 12th-place finish in the Premier League last season while also exiting both domestic cups in the third round and losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals. It certainly wasn’t the way things were supposed to go after two consecutive windows of massive spending.

The group of players that’ll enter the new season will have a completely different look to the squad of 12 months ago, with the likes of Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante and Mason Mount leaving, and Christopher Nkunku and Nicolas Jackson among those coming in.

Kicking off the pre-season is a friendly clash against everyone’s favourite lower-league club, Wrexham. Backed by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, the Welsh side captured the imagination as they climbed out of the National League last season with a record points total, holding off the serious challenge of Notts County, who finished second with the second-highest points total of all time.

Supporters will still be getting used to all the attention their club now receives, but they’ll hope fixtures like these against one of England’s elite clubs will become more common as the years go by.

Chelsea vs Wrexham match stats

With just 38 goals in 38 games, only four teams finished the 2022/23 Premier League season with a worse attacking record than Chelsea. Their highest scorer was Kai Havertz with just seven strikes, and he has since departed in a big-money move to London rivals Arsenal.

Although obviously playing at a lower level, Wrexham had no such trouble, with 38-goal striker Paul Mullen helping them hit the net a whopping 116 times, though they were still second to Notts County (117) in that regard.
