Joy at Stamford Bridge as Tuchel announces the date Chelsea fans can see Koulibaly for the first time.
After their 2-1 win over Club America in Las Vegas, Chelsea are preparing for their next game.
After a spell in LA and then a game in Nevada, next stop is the East Coast, where they will face Charlotte in North Carolina.
Tuchel says it is unlikely that Koulibaly will play vs Charlotte. #CFC

After a week of integration we will likely see Raheem Sterling for the first team, but in his press conference ahead of Wednesday night’s game, Tuchel explained that it’s unlikely we will see fellow signing Kalidou Koulibaly, who joined up after Sterling.
That’s what we’d expect, and certainly opens the door for the Senegal star to play against Arsenal when the two sides meet later in the week in the “Florida Cup.”
To us, that sounds like the perfect fixture to debut a peak age, physically dominant defender. Arsenal have improved this summer, but we should still beat them, even with both sides likely to play much changed sides.
