Chelsea will be facing Championship side Peterborough United in the first friendly ahead of the 2021/22 season, according to The Athletic's Simon Johnson.

The game is set to take place on Saturday behind closed doors at the Cobham training base. So far, there's no announcement as to whether the game will be televised.

As most of Chelsea's first-team players were involved at Euro 2020 (or at the Copa America, as is Thiago Silva's case), they won't be available to Thomas Tuchel.

Even though the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Marcos Alonso, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi might be in the team, this could be a chance for the younger part of the squad.

Marc Guehi, Conor Gallagher, Dujon Sterling, Armando Broja and even Charly Musonda (remember him?) might well feature against Peterborough.
