Re: Gold 398: New Era at Chelsea

With the last friendly before the first game of the season finishing 2-0 against Bournmouth. Where captain David Luiz and Insigne scoring the goals. After dominating the game with 64 % of possesion and also completing the third clean sheet in a row. Tom Drake is ready too announce the first 11 for his first offical game in charge of Chelsea.

Which is a line up which will scare any other manager in Europe especially looking at the players on the bench. With Newcastle being the first team to face this fresh and youthful squad.
