As the start of the Premier League season approaches, the Blues face one final test as they go to Italy in hopes gather momentum into their opening game against Everton.

The last game Chelsea played was against fellow Premier League outfit Arsenal in the Florida Cup where the Gunners won conclusively 4-0.

The Blues are now little over a week away from the start of their league season away to Everton, while Udinese will be in competitive action next time out against either Sudtirol or FeralpiSalo in the Coppa Italia.

The team are yet to find consistency so far this summer, with only one win in three games.

The outflowing of players such as Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen may have upset the balance of the team, but facing Udinese presents a chance for the London club to pull themselves together before the new season.

Udinese finished 12th in Serie A last season, which proved to be their joint-best position in Italy’s top flight since 2013, so it went down as a successful campaign for the club.

The White and Blacks will face Sudtirol or FeralpiSalo in the Coppa Italia on August 5, with their Serie A campaign due to begin away to the champions AC Milan on August 13.

Udinese have been busy this summer in terms of friendlies, playing four times in total, including a 2-1 victory over Pafos on July 25, which followed a 2-1 defeat to Bundesliga giants Bayer Leverkusen.

The two sides faced each other in a friendly over 20 years ago in 2001, where the score finished 1-1, where Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink scored the Blues’ only goal of the contest.

Chelsea, meanwhile, will enter this match off the back of a 4-0 defeat to Premier League rivals Arsenal in the final match of their pre-season tour on July 23.

Head coach Thomas Tuchel was critical of his side in the aftermath of the four-goal loss in Florida, with the German questioning the commitment of his players and also insisting that his team “deserved to lose”.

The Blues played three times in North America, starting their preparations for the new season with a 2-1 victory over Club America before losing to Charlotte FC on penalties following a 1-1 draw.
