Here's how Chelsea line-up for their friendly against AFC Wimbledon this afternoon.

Chelsea: Schwarzer; Aina, Zouma, Christensen, Ake; Van Ginkel, Matic; Salah, Baker, Swift; Bamford

Jose Mourinho will be delighted with the way his side started pre-season with a thumping 5-0 win against Wycombe Wanderers.

The Blues have plenty of squad options, which allows the boss to field younger players with more experienced first team stars who will be looking to improve their match sharpness ahead of the Premier League which starts next month.

John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic, Nemanja Matic and Kurt Zouma were all part of the squad which travelled for that game at Wycombe.

There’s a great deal of excitement surrounding Chelsea at the moment, after some superb signings have given the Blues a very strong looking side ahead of the new campaign.

Wimbledon will be out to cause an upset and it’s a chance for them to test themselves against a quality, well drilled unit and Chelsea need to be on their guard as Wimbledon could make this a physical game to try and level the playing field.
