Lampard’s side head into this clash full of confidence, following our excellent 5-3 win over RB Salzburg in Austria. Pulisic netted his first goals in a Chelsea shirt, with Ross Barkley, Pedro and Michy Batshuayi also on target.
Our head coach has hinted he is getting closer to knowing who to select in his starting line-up for our opening Premier League clash against Manchester United, so the weekend clash with Monchengladbach will act as a final chance for players to stake a claim.
N’Golo Kante is yet to feature in pre-season as he recovers from a knee injury, but having returned to training recently he will be hoping to gain some minutes under his belt before the new campaign gets underway.
What’s up next?
The new Premier League season arrives following this clash, with a tasty fixture to get the campaign underway when we travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Sunday 11 August.
A few days later, the Blues will head to Istanbul where we will meet Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup.
