Hello everyone and welcome to football.london’s live Chelsea coverage on Thursday.
There remains just two days until the Premier League roars back into action and Thomas Tuchel will certainly be aiming to continue where Chelsea left off just under a fortnight ago.
As it stands, the Blues sit top of the Premier League following a 3-1 win against Southampton. They next face Brentford away from home, so we will be bringing you the latest on the Blues’ preparations across west London, including any early team news.
Elsewhere, work is still ongoing in the background on any potential transfers that could be done in January or beyond in the summer window. Chelsea remain linked to a number of players, including Aurelien Tchouameni and a surprise name in the form of Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse.
Meanwhile, fresh from their takeover, Newcastle United could be planning a triple assault on Stamford Bridge.
With that all being said, make sure you stick with us throughout the day so that you don’t miss a single line or development from Chelsea.
