Chelsea vs Bohemians LIVE stream: How to watch Frank Lampard’s first game on TV and online
Club legend Lampard returned to Stamford Bridge this month, replacing Maurizio Sarri as manager.
The former midfielder has just one season of managerial experience as he almost guided Derby to promotion from the Championship last term.
But in a tough period with the Blues currently operating under a transfer ban, bigwigs clearly felt a familiar face is what was needed to make full use of the club’s resources.
And tonight, we will see exactly what a Chelsea side under Lampard will look like.
Lampard has a 35-man squad in Ireland to pick from for tonight’s game, meaning wholesale changes should be expected throughout the match.
That includes several academy players, recently returned loanees and established first-team players.
New boy Christian Pulisic is yet to join his new team-mates due to his involvement in the Gold Cup for USA, while Willian has also just finished his duties for Brazil in the Copa America.
It is anyone’s guess who will start tonight’s game – but expect an array of ages and experience to be in action.
When is the match and who are Bohemians?
Tonight’s game will kick-off at 7:45pm.
It is being held at Bohemians’ 4,200-capacity ground, Dalymount Park, which is one of the oldest stadiums in Ireland.
Bohemians are in the top tier of Irish football, and currently sit third in the table, with the competition running from February to October.
Where can you watch the match?
The game is not being broadcast on TV in the UK.
But you can watch it via a live stream on the Chelsea website, with all seven of the Blues’ pre-season friendlies available to broadcast for £10.99.
Or you can catch it on the official Chelsea app, The 5th Stand, with every match available for £1.99 each.
