Chelsea vs Reading: Pulisic, Bakayoko start for Chelsea

Frank Lampard will lead his Chelsea side for the first time in English soil on Sunday evening when they take on Reading in their fifth preseason match. 

The Blues, on the back of a 2-1 win over Barcelona in their last match in Japan, will hope to continue on the same path when the face-off at the Madjeski Stadium.

New signing Christian Pulisic has been handed a starting berth and will help the attack that will be led by Olivier Giroud. 

Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater have been given perhaps the last chance to impress the manager, and will lead the midfield alongside Ross Barkley

There's no place for Cezar Azpilcueta and David Luiz on the starting lineup, with Christensen, Tomori, and Zappacosta all starting. 

 

 

They face a Reading side that has been on a tour of Spain as they gear up for their first match of the campaign against Sheffield United next week.
