Chelsea face an uncertain season in 2019/20 despite their relative success in Europe last term.
The Blues have been struck with a transfer ban, meaning they won’t be able to replace megastar Eden Hazard following his switch to Real Madrid.
Christian Pulisic has officially arrived after signed a pre-contract deal before the ban was enforced, but the man who signed him, Maurizio Sarri, has departed.
Frank Lampard has replaced Italian boss Sarri and must get the best out of his current crop, having accepted the transfer ban is unlikely to be overturned.
Chelsea will play in the Champions League this season – a big test for Lampard in his first season managing a top-flight club.

Chelsea kit 2019/20
Chelsea released their new home kit at the beginning of May and used Eden Hazard as the face of the launch.
Yet Hazard was then sold to Real Madrid, meaning the Blues’ marketing team were left rather red faced.
Chelsea debuted their home kit on the last game of the 2018/19 season against Watford.
And we’ve now got a glimpse of their away kit too.
Check out the first pictures of the new Chelsea kit for 2019/20.
