Ferencváros v Chelsea
Pre-season friendly
7.45 KO (BST)
Groupama Arena, Budapest

Chelsea will play their penultimate pre-season friendly against Hungarian outfit Ferencváros in Budapest this evening. 

Boss Jose Mourinho is putting the final touches on his preparations for the new season, but before then he will have to get his team ready to go up against one of the big boys of Hungarian football.

Chelsea have lost just two of their pre-season friendlies so far - a 3-0 defeat against Werder Bremen last Sunday and a 1-0 reverse against Besiktas, however there are plenty of reasons for the Special One to smile about despite that defeat.

New £30 million signing Diego Costa has hit the ground running and scored a beauty against Turkish outfit Fenerbahce - although he has been rested for tonight's game. Fernando Torres will take his place and get some valuable minutes under his belt, as well as a goal or two.

With a showpiece friendly against Real Sociedad on Tuesday ahead of their Premier League curtain raiser against Burnely on Monday, Chelsea's experimental line-up looks as follows:

Chelsea starting XI: Cech; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Zouma, Filipe Luis; Mikel, Ramires; Schurrle, Willian, Torres; Drogba.
