You can hear new coach Craig Short discussing the game in iFollow right now.

THE OPPOSITION
Andy Myers is the man in charge of the latest crop of talented youngsters at Stamford Bridge:

"The new squad is looking really good,' he told the official Chelsea website."We will again be a young squad and with that comes a change of dynamics but in the circumstances I’ve been very pleased with the pre-season programme.'

"It’s a great competition for this age group and it’s one that most of the boys need to play in and be part of" he continued. "It’s a good thing for players to see what’s needed to further their career and develop parts of their game which they might not while playing Under-23s football.

'I think it’s a massive learning experience for all, players and coaches included, and hopefully we can bring that bit of knowledge into this season’s competition.
