New England Revolution vs Chelsea: TV channel, live stream, squad news & preview


The New England Revolution will host Chelsea at Gillette Stadium in a friendly organised by respective team owners Robert Kraft and Roman Abramovich to help promote eradicating racism and anti-Semitism from the game, with the match being called the "Final Whistle on Hate".


The Premier League side are bringing five youngsters with them in their 23-man squad and they will be trying to prove to Maurizio Sarri that they are worth taking a chance on, while New England's interim boss Mike Lapper will just want to get his team back in form after losing three of their last six matches, two of which were by five goals.


PositionChelsea squad Goalkeepers Arrizabalaga, Caballero, Green Defenders Alonso, Zappacosta, Christensen, David Luiz, Emerson, Azpilicueta, Guehi, James, Chalobah Midfielders Hazard, Jorginho, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek, Barkley, Willian, Gallagher Forwards Pedro, Higuain, Giroud, UgboYoung winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is still out with an injury, and many of Chelsea's key players won't play the full 90 minutes, giving the likes of Reece James and Ike Ugbo the chance to come on and show Sarri what they can do.


Sarri's public meltdown at goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga ignoring his orders in the Carabao Cup final, an impending transfer ban, and now the projected departure of star man Eden Hazard have really dampened the club's season.


The timing of the friendly has also drawn the ire of Sarri, although the match was organised back in March before Chelsea knew their Europa League fate and a final appearance was only a possibility.


This match should see Chelsea's forwards strike fear into the American side's weak defence, with the likes of Oliver Giroud, Gonzalo Higuain and Willian all trying to show they should be in the Europa League final starting line-up.
