The Blues are back in overseas action this week, as our latest pre-season clash leads us to Austria and a fixture with RB Salzburg.

Frank Lampard’s side head into the game off the back of a 4-3 win at Reading, with the start of the new Premier League season growing ever closer.

Last time out

The Blues beat Reading at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday, edging out the Royals 4-3 with Mason Mount on target twice. The highlights of that win can be viewed below.

Lampard’s side have also defeated Barcelona and St Patrick’s Athletic so far this pre-season.

Squad news

Lampard is expected to name a similar squad to that which defeated Reading last time out, although N’Golo Kante is closing in on a return from injury. The boss has stated that he expects the midfielder to take part in full training this week, although it remains to be seen whether Wednesday’s game comes too soon for him to feature.

What’s to come?
