Chelsea end their preparations for the 2022/23 Premier League campaign with a trip to Italy to face Udinese on Friday at 8pm (UK time).
The first pre-season of the Todd Boehly era at Chelsea hasn’t been the smoothest of rides, with the Blues struggling in their friendlies while also being given the runaround in the transfer window. In three games during their tour of the United States, Chelsea managed just one win over Club America, losing to Charlotte FC on penalties before being humbled 4-0 by London rivals Arsenal.

Chelsea team news
Chelsea will be thankful to be able to call upon N’Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek after the pair missed the club’s trip to the United States, left in England to train with the U23s. It remains to be seen whether they will play a part in Italy, however, as they have had less training time with their teammates. Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly will both be expected to feature heavily as Chelsea prepare for their Premier League opener against Everton next weekend. Thomas Tuchel also has a decision to make with regards to including the club’s fringe players, who he has no real plans for ahead of the new campaign, whether they play or are pushed to one side to focus on those that will form part of his Premier League squad.
