Chelsea play Aston Villa at the Al Nahyan Stadium for the first CBF | Al Wahda Challenge Cup.

Hello and welcome to live coverage of Chelsea's winter-friendly match against Aston Villa in the inaugural CBF | Al Wahda Challenge Cup at Abu Dhabi's Al Nahyan Stadium.

Several Blues first-team players can sharpen up before the Premier League's return later this month.

Graham Potter can also evaluate 12 Development Squad players who spent the week in the Middle East.

The CBF | Al Wahda Challenge Cup is up for grabs, and Chelsea's form going into the World Cup break suggests they might win it.

Potter doesn't want another mood-altering loss to Aston Villa.

Live coverage of the match at the Al Nahyan Stadium will begin at 2.10 GMT, and will have lots more before and after the event.
