Chelsea takes on the German side Borussia Monchengladbach Live at the Borussia Park in the final preseason game of the season.
The London club has been in good form under the new gaffer, Frank Lampard, registering wins against RB Salzburg, Reading and Barcelona with a single loss coming against the Japanese side, Kawasaki Frontale.
Lampard’s men have been brilliant in attack, taking on and converting the chances with some sublime goals, but the defence, especially the set-piece defending, needs some work and the gaffer would look to improve on that aspect before the Premier League opener against Manchester United.

For Monchengladbach, Lars Stindl could make a comeback after missing the preseason games with a fractured shin bone. Christopher Kramer is out with a ruptured ligament.
