The Stamford Bridge outfit was able to beat Mexican side Club America 2-1 at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Despite their win against Club America, they fumbled against Charlotte falling to a 5-3 defeat in penalties at the Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte.
Chelsea will have to face Italian side Udinese at the Dacia Arena in Udine. Thomas Tuchel and his boys will be keen on bouncing back from the Arsenal game.
