CONFIRMED: Chelsea line-up v Vitesse Arnhem - Mourinho picks strong side!

Vitesse

Here's the Chelsea team to take on Vitesse Arnhem, kick-off at 18:30 GMT.

Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Luis, Fabregas, Torres, Van Ginkel, Salah, Costa, Matic, Cahill, Azpilicueta

Chelsea enjoy a rare chance to play against the side that have housed several of the Blues’ youngsters over the last couple of seasons.

Chelsea and Vitesse enjoy a unique relationship, which allows the West London side to send players on loan to the Eredivisie regularly to enhance their first team experience.

The Blues have been close to perfect through pre-season so far with a 1-1 draw against RZ Pellets the only occasion where they haven’t managed to register a victory.

It will be a good chance for Jose Mourinho to test out the full strength of his team as he’s likely to include a number of fringe players against stars guaranteed to start against Burnley when the Premier League gets under way in a couple of weeks.

One improvement Mourinho is likely to be looking for is in defence as Chelsea have conceded in each of their last three pre-season games.
