How to watch Charlotte FC’s pre-season friendly against Chelsea on TV

Chelsea to continue pre-season friendlies against Charlotte in America

Chelsea opened their pre-season friendlies against Club America against which they won 2-1 with goals from Timo Werner, Mason Mount and an own goal for Club America from Reece James.

The Blues had a tumultuous year with the club going through an explosive and political ownership battle, culminating in the club being taken over by the Todd Boehly Consortium.

However, Thomas Tuchel and Les Bleus management are far from done as they hope to sign Jules Kounde from Sevilla and Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli.

Chelsea’s defensive line-up was forced to undergo an overhaul after Antonio Ruidger left for Real Madrid and Andres Christensen signed with Barcelona.

Camp Nou have also reportedly moved to sign long-serving Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta before the end of the transfer window.

With many names still ending up with Tuchel and Stamford Bridge, the rest of the Chelsea squad will be hoping to utilize their pre-season fixtures ahead of a busy 2022/23 season.
