Frank Lampard and his Chelsea side are preparing for their final pre-season friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

The Blues claimed a 5-3 victory over Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday evening. Lampard has given his whole squad a fair chance to impress given the club’s transfer ban but his team selection on Saturday is likely to be his strongest.

Gladbach have enjoyed a positive pre-season under new coach Marco Rose, with a loss to Athletic Bilbao the lone blemish on their summer record following victories over Guangzhou R&F, FC Mönchengladbach, Istanbul Basaksehir, Rayo Vallecano and Angers.

These two sides have met on two occasions before. Chelsea won one game and the other one ended with a draw.

For this game, suggests the following odds:

Borussia Monchengladbach’s possible win –2.73,


Chelsea’s possible win –2.35.
