Chelsea predicted XI: Bohemians FC (N)

Chelsea predicted XI: Bohemians FC (N) Chelsea embark on their first pre-season friendly under the hotly-anticipated stewardship of Frank Lampard, taking on Bohemians FC in Dublin. A 22-man squad made up mainly of returning loanees, and peripheral figures from Maurizio Sarri’s ill-fated reign initially travelled to Ireland in order to prepare for the new season and prove their worth to the new manager. Following three days of intensive training, said players were then joined by more senior figures such as David Luiz, who had been involved with their respective national teams. Whilst still missing a few key players, Lampard will feel his side are more than ready to kick off their pre-season in style.

This is a list of notable players for Chelsea Football Club, whether or not they have a Wikipedia article. It generally includes only those players who made more than 100 appearances for the club

An equaliser in the final minute of extra time denied Frank Lampard a first victory as Chelsea manager.

Lampard named two completely different starting XI’s in each half and despite taking an early lead through Michy Batshuayi’s powerful strike, Chelsea’s lack of match fitness showed as they rarely stepped out of second gear. Few players excelled in Dublin, as a turgid apathy began to consume the Blues’ play.

They were then rightly punished for their complacent attitude when Bohemians trialist Eric Molley smashed in the equalising goal from inside the 18-yard box.

Chelsea had a few bright spells early on in each half, with both Billy Gilmour and Tiemoue Bakayoko drawing good saves from Bohemians keeper’ James Talbot, but their play was generally slow and ponderous with players seemingly lacking the confidence to make runs off the ball.

The game will serve as a welcome reminder to Lampard and his staff of the challenge they have ahead of them, but with more senior figures returning to the fold they will be hopeful of a positive result in their next game against St Patrick’s on Saturday.

Swansea considering loan deal for Kasey Palmer.
Championship side Swansea City are considering a deal to sign Chelsea midfielder Kasey Palmer on a season-long loan. According to Sky Sports, Swansea are interested in signing Palmer and are weighing up an offer for the playmaker. Palmer spent the second half of last season on loan to Bristol City, but struggled to break into the starting XI on a regular basis – after having the same problem on loan to Blackburn in the first few months of the 2018/19 campaign. © Charles McQuillan/Getty Images Sport Charles McQuillan/Getty Images Sport The 22-year-old has been with Chelsea in 2013, but is yet to make his senior debut for the club.
