CONFIRMED: Chelsea line-up v AS Roma

Chelsea are preparing to play their final pre-season game in the US against AS Roma.

Chelsea's pre-season form has largely been very good, getting off to a winning streak under Jose Mourinho until his former side Real Madrid stopped them in their tracks in midweek.

That 3-1 defeat was in the inaugural International Champions Cup final, and now the Blues have a chance to end the US tour on a high against Italian side AS Roma, one week before the Premier League begins.

The match takes place in American capital Washington DC, and kicks off at 1am UK time.

Chelsea have confirmed their starting line-up for the match and it is as follows:

Schwarzer; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Terry (c), Bertrand; Essien, Mikel; Moses, De Bruyne, Schurrle; Torres.

Subs: Blackman, Ivanovic, Cole, Cahill Ramires, Lampard, Oscar, Van Ginkel, Hazard, Lukaku.

Roma line-up as follows: De Sanctis; Maicon, Benatia, Castan, Balzareti; Bradley, Strootman, Florenzi; Lamela, Osvaldo, Totti.

What is your prediction for the game?
