It will be the first time Mauricio Pochettino watches his Chelsea side from the dugout after taking over on July 1. He has brought a 29-man squad, with Dujuan Richards only in attendance for training, to America.

Pochettino is excited at the prospect of overseeing the Blues for the very first occasion, with fans getting a first glance at what a Chelsea side under the Argentine could look like.

“So far so good, so happy to be with you here,” the 51-year-old said in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday. “First game tomorrow, I’m very excited about our first friendly game. When you are in Chelsea, official all the games. Very happy to be here and working with the players and staff and looking forward to tomorrow.”

The likes of Christopher Nkunku, Malo Gusto, Nicolas Jackson and Andrey Santos, among many others, could run out for the first time in Chelsea colours against Wrexham.
