NEW YORK RED BULLS v CHELSEA BETTING PREVIEW
New York Red Bulls had an MLS game in the sapping humidity of Florida on Sunday, before a US Open Cup quarter-final tie against the Philadelphia Union on Tuesday. So, they wil be more than tired for this clash. They are in decent form with five wins in their last six games but, of course, they can't to compete with the English Champions. Anyway they hope that their mid-season fitness will prove crucial at times.
The Red Bulls have suffered for the loss of talismanic forward Thierry Henry in attack last January, but his replacement Bradley Wright-Phillips has netted an impressive 8 goals so far. We expect a 4-3-3 formation with Grella as central forward, Zizzo and Sam on his flanks.
As for Chelsea, this is their first real test of pre-season after pedestrian affairs against Sydney FC and Thailand All Stars. Mourinho has off-set the loss of veteran goalkeeper, Petr Cech, and striker, Didier Drogba, with the signings of Stoke stopper Asmir Begovic as well as former Porto and Atletico Madrid forward Radamel Falcao.
Falcao, Juan Cuadrado, Ramires and Willian are expected to join up after this match. Mourinho is likely to field a team with a lot of youngsters: Aina, Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek and Traorè could all start the match. Other new signings such as Nathan and Kenedy will play in the 2nd half. Remy will probably lead the line while Oscar, Azpilicueta and Terry are the other senior players that will be probably included in the starting XI.
