Chelsea face Perth Glory at the Optus Stadium this afternoon in Maurizio Sarri’s first game in charge of the club – and we can’t wait.

After finally putting pen-to-paper with the club, Sarri has got to work on the training ground to start implementing his style of football upon the Chelsea players.

It’ll take some time, especially considering how negative Antonio Conte’s side were last term, but these pre-season fixtures will give us an idea of how far off the finished article we are.

With sole summer signing Jorginho set to make his debut for the club against Perth Glory today, this is a game that we’ve been eagerly awaiting, and it’s here.

Here’s how Chelsea will lineup for Sarri’s first game in charge. We don’t imagine many of these players will still be on the field beyond the half-time break.
