Hello and welcome to Tuesday’s Chelsea live blog from football.london.
The Blues continue their preparations for the upcoming 2021/22 campaign this evening as they face AFC Bournemouth in a pre-season clash.
Thomas Tuchel is set to rest the majority of his stars, despite nine key players returning to training at the weekend, football.london understands.
That means the likes of N’Golo Kante, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and plenty more are set to sit out of tonight’s runout against the Cherries.
We will have plenty of build-up to tonight’s game as well as plenty of transfer speculation that continues to come in thick and fast recently.
No new arrivals have been confirmed at Stamford Bridge just yet, but the west London club are working tirelessly behind the scenes to bolster Tuchel’s options ahead of their first game against Crystal Palace in less than three weeks’ time.
We’re expected to hear plenty more in terms of transfer rumours throughout the day, so just scroll down for the very latest updates.
