Chelsea are back in pre-season this afternoon and Frank Lampard is using the showdown with Irish side St Patrick's to offer opportunities to a few Stamford Bridge misfits.

Davide Zappacosta, Michy Batshuayi and even Jorginho have failed to live up to the hype which surrounded them when they first rocked up in west London.

All three start in Dublin as Chelsea attempt to bounce back from a disappointing 1-1 draw with Bohemians, in which Batshuayi scored, in Lampard's first match as Blues manager.

Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori are also given opportunities having spent last season on loan at Derby, under the tutelage of then-Rams manager Lampard.

Lampard has also handed a chance to Tammy Abraham, who helped fire Aston Villa back into the Premier League last season.

Chelsea’s current crop are all the club’s record goalscorer has to work with due to their two-window transfer ban.

St Patrick’s starting XI: Murphy, Cleary, Webster, Kelly, Bermingham, McCabe, Forrestor, Markey, Clarke, Walker, Doona

Chelsea starting XI: Caballero, Zappacosta, Tomori, Luiz, Emerson, Jorginho, Mount, Kovacic, Barkley, Abraham, Batshuayi
