This will be the Blues’ first friendly of pre-season before they travel to Ireland for a training camp. Tuchel’s men will then face Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur as part of a series to raise awareness and funds for Mental Health charity Mind.

What have Peterborough said on the friendly?

Boss Darren Ferguson said: “It’s a game that has come at the right time for us. It will be a good test of where we are at. It’s obviously a big step up in standard. It’s a game against high quality players. I understand they will be using first team players so we will need to have our defensive shape spot on for a start.

“It also gives us a chance to get away for a couple of days. We will travel down on Thursday night, train at Chelsea on Friday and then play the game Saturday morning.
