No Thiago Silva but Moses strikes and Drinkwater features in Chelsea friendly draw with AFC Wimbledon

Share This

The Blues considered using their new defender but held him back as the loan group got a chance to sharpen their touches against the EFL side
Chelsea’s Victor Moses scored in a 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Cobham Training Centre on Tuesday afternoon, as a host of loanees including Danny Drinkwater got a runout.
However, Chelsea’s newest signing Thiago Silva was left out after his free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain, with Frank Lampard mulling over whether to include him in his plans to face Liverpool.
The Brazil international played in the Champions League final and then signed for the Blues before having a two-week holiday, meaning he is a step behind his peers and was not included in the 3-1 away win over Brighton.
Without Silva, the Blues still put a strong side out against the League One side’s fringe players, with Baba Rahman, Davide Zappacosta, Jake Clarke-Salter, Lewis Baker and Lewis Bate among those who played.
Wimbledon trialist Melvyn Lorenzen opened the scoring after 18 minutes, heading home a free-kick in the first half before Moses subsequently levelled the scoring from the spot after half-time.
Former Werder Bremen and ADO Den Haag winger Lorenzen told Goal he is bidding for a move to an English club in the coming weeks.
