Chelsea face David Beckham in All-Star friendly

Published Add your comment

Chelsea continue their pre-season preparations against David Beckham and the MLS All-Stars in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Roberto Di Matteo's side began their American tour with a 4-2 victory over Seattle Sounders. New signings Eden Hazard and Marko Marin both scored, and Di Matteo will be hopeful they continue their impressive early form.

The last time the two teams faced each other, the All-Stars grabbed a 1-0 win thanks to Dwayne De Rosario, and the DC United player will line up against Chelsea once again.

Other players to watch for the All-Stars include LA Galaxy forward Landon Donavan, who had two spells on loan with Everton, former Watford centre-back Jay De Merit and Gunners legend Thierry Henry.

But the undoubted star of the show will be former-England captain David Beckham. The 37-year-old LA Galaxy star missed out on Team GB, but will face British opposition tomorrow as John Terry is expected to play, although Frank Lampard could be rested.

Spain striker Fernando Torres has also rejoined Di Matteo's squad after he was granted extended leave following Spain's Euro 2012 triumph. The former-Liverpool frontman has been in training for the past two days, but this match could come too early for him.
