Chelsea started their pre-season in great fashion when they beat Wycombe Wanderers (0-5) despite playing with many youngsters in the squad. In their second pre-season game against Wimbledon, they were losing 0-2 at half time but with some changes in the second half, they overturned the score to win 2-3. It's good to point out that many high profile players did not feature in those games and the squad consisted largely of fringe players.


However, tonight Chelsea have called up many first team players and it is very likely that they will feature in this third pre-season game against Wolfsberger. In fact, new signings and star players Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa and Filipe Luis have travelled with the squad. First team players such as defenders Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta who played an important role for Chelsea last season have also been included in the squad along with striker Fernando Torres.


Wolfsberger are playing in the Austrian Bundesliga and their season has already started. In fact, 3 days ago, they played their first match of the season in Austrian Bundesliga against Admira and they won the game comfortably. Tonight, against Chelsea, there will be many changes in the line-up with fringe players expected to be given a run-out as this is only a friendly match and 3 days later, they have to play in the Austrian Bundesliga league against Austria Wien.


Wolfsberger are very inferior when compared to Chelsea. They do not have high quality players who can really pose a threat to Chelsea. In fact, the best player of Wolfsberger is the 30-year old midfielder Jacobo Ynclan. In his career, he has played mostly for teams playing in the second and third division in Spanish leagues. With Chelsea expected to feature some of their best players in this match, a comfortable win is very likely for the English side.


Besides, Wolfsberger are playing this friendly game mostly for the reserve and fringe players to gain some match fitness. For Chelsea, it's not only about match fitness. In fact, the players are desperate to impress Jose Mourinho in an attempt to secure a first team place in the team. So, I expect the players to be motivated to get a win here for their coach.

Why should WAC play this match just with substitutes?? This game is one of very few (if not the only) chance for the players to compete with such a team with great names and great history. So I am sure every player of the squad should get time on the pitch. I expect WAC to play with two different teams each for one half. In a friendly like this I would wait for the line up and see how motivated Mourinhos teams is today.
