For Chelsea, the 2019 / 2020 Premier League season gets underway with a testing encounter, against Manchester United, at Old Trafford.

Now firmly entrenched in the Chelsea managerial hot-seat, Frank Lampard will be hoping that his charges can get a result against Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side.

Chelsea no longer have Eden Hazard to rely on and the departure of David Luiz, on transfer deadline day, confirmed that the Brazilian centre-back was not in Lampard’s plans for this season.

However, although Chelsea are operating under a two-window transfer ban, the Chelsea travelling support will get a glimpse of Christian Pulisic with the USA international having signed for the club before the ban came into force.

As usual, we’re running our regular Match Day Moments feature where we ask you to air your views on a variety of subjects including, but not limited to:

1 – The build-up to the big game.

2 – The starting eleven selected by Frank Lampard.

3 – The action as it happens up at Old Trafford.

4 – Your thoughts in the immediate period after the sounding of the final whistle.

Here’s hoping we get off to a winning start.

Up the Chels!

    • Barring the cheap goal given away, that was a very encouraging start for Chelsea. 2 strikes hit the post, hopefully they go in next half .

  • Rare to say this about a striker but I think Abraham still has a long way to go. He has killed Chelsea striking force today. Slow to react in the box. Otherwise the team looks promising.

  • Horrible result but I liked the attacking intent …. Hopefully when Rudiger is back, and Kante is up to speed, things will improve

  • Pedro was poor he gave the ball away too much Zouma well what can you say Rudiger hurry back your right Abraham has a lot to learn he was on his heels first half if he’d been more switched on he would have had a tap in but we moved the ball well and had some good moments but let’s move on we need to do better against Leicester Sunday I’m not to concerned about Wednesday it’s really a made up Uefa game where they get loads of money

  • We lost the game. It’s not a big deal. We will learned from all the mistakes done today. And build on all the positives. Defence needs definitely to be sorted out

    I’m confident the young lads will improve.

  • Lots of positives from the game more than negatives… the result is not reflective of the match … defence is our main problem today.. we need to fix that .. didn’t like letting Luiz and Cahill both go especially Luiz as we needed experience on the back but we will improve for sure
