Chelsea have so far played three pre-season games in the tour of America.

The Blues have faced Club America, Charlotte FC and Premier League rivals Arsenal.

Our final game of the pre-season will be against Udinese on Friday, but Chelsea may need to play another game to get everyone into match fitness, Thomas Tuchel has revealed.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed in a clip filmed by Chelsea TV that his team will be playing against Udinese twice.

One of the games will likely be behind closed doors, with the other to be broadcasted live on Friday.

The Friday game will have more of a “first team” look, while players who come on as subs in the first game, may then start the second, and vice versa.

Chelsea’s last pre-season game was against Arsenal, and Tuchel’s side were beaten 4-0.

The German was very unhappy after that game.

“I am far from relaxed,” Tuchel said after Chelsea’s heavy defeat to Arsenal.

“We were simply not good enough. We were simply not competitive.

“The worrying part is that the level of commitment physically and mentally for this match was far higher for Arsenal than for us.”
