Carlo Ancelotti has done as promised by naming a strong side for our final pre-season friendly of the summer against Hamburg, which debuts our new away kit.

As suggested in yesterday's open training session, Didier Drogba is still not ready to start but is named among the subs, though Frank Lampard comes in from the off, and Branislav Ivanovic continues at centre-back alongside John Terry. Paulo Ferreira is at right-back with Ross Turnbull in goal.

In attack it is the same trio that started against Frankfurt, Salomon Kalou on the right, Nicolas Anelka down the middle, and Florent Malouda on the left. The rest of the travelling squad is named on the bench.

Chelsea will line up in the following 4-3-3 formation:

Ross Turnbull
Paulo Ferreira
Branislav Ivanovic
John Terry (c)
Ashley Cole
Michael Essien
John Mikel Obi
Frank Lampard
Salomon Kalou
Nicolas Anelka
Florent Malouda

Subs: Hilario, Sam Walker, Michael Mancienne, Ricardo Carvalho, Jeffrey Bruma, Patrick van Aanholt, Yury Zhirkov, Nemanja Matic, Yossi Benayoun, Josh McEachran, Gael Kakuta, Scott Sinclair, Didier Drogba, Fabio Borini.
