Chelsea takes on Red Bull Salzburg Live in their penultimate preseason game of the season before squaring off against Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday.
With just one loss against Kawasaki Frontale in the preseason, new manager, Frank Lampard, has had a great start to his time at Chelsea and he would like to continue the good work with a win against Red Bull Salzburg tonight.

Chelsea are still without the services of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Reece James and Antonio Rudiger who are all out with long term injuries.
Meanwhile, N’Golo Kante is back in training, but the Frenchman isn’t expected to be involved in this match as a precautionary measure.
Willian still hasn’t returned with the first-team squad after his involvement and the hamstring injury he suffered in the Copa America.
PREDICTED STARTING ELEVEN
Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Andreas Christensen, Emerson Palmieri; Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic; Pedro, Christian Pulisic, Ross Barkley; Tammy Abraham
Chelsea managed to stay on the right side of the 4-3 thriller at Reading last week, but the gaffer would want more defensive solidity this time around.
With just a couple of preseason games to go before the Premier League kickoff against Manchester United, Lampard would look to start his strongest eleven.
We expect a 3-1 win for the Blues with Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic getting on the scoresheet.
