Advert!! (Post Continues Below)

Chelsea have another friendly match this afternoon, their second real one of the pre-season.

The Blues beat Bournemouth 2-1 earlier on this week and they will be looking to build on that winning momentum at Arsenal today.

Thomas Tuchel has a massive squad to chose from, but it is slowly being filtered down to a squad that he will be taking into the new season with as more of the Euros stars return back.

There will be a notable number of players missing who featured in the last match, according to reliable insider account, Carefree Youth.

First of all though, it looks like the match comes too soon for both Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen, who only returned back a couple of days ago.

However, new goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli is in the squad and he could feature at some point today.

Meanwhile, the following are not in the squad today – Lewis Baker, Ethan Ampadu, Matt Miazga, Tino Anjorin, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Kenedy, Charly Musonda, Armando Broja.

Also, maybe no Marcos Alonso, which could spark some transfer rumours…

I’m not sure why but I’m told Marcos Alonso won’t be with the squad tomorrow. (A small chance I’m wrong but we will see)

Danny Drinkwater and Ross Barkley survive this cut though!
