Denis Zakaria featured in Chelsea friendly win

Denis Zakaria featured for Chelsea in Saturday’s friendly win against Brighton.

The midfielder is on-loan at Chelsea from Juventus.

The Blues defeated Brighton in a behind-closed-doors friendly match on Saturday with Carney Chukwuemeka getting both goals.

The match was played at Falmer Stadium in Brighton as Graham Potter led his side against his old club just over a week after leaving in a £20million compensation deal.

Both sides played a mix of senior and youth players as they coped with the cancellation of their Premier League fixtures due to a lack of policing after the Queen’s passing last week.

Those players who faced RB Salzburg in midweek and are due to join up with their national team squads were allowed time off for the semi-competitive training match.

It meant runouts for the likes of Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Trevoh Chalobah, Armando Broja, Conor Gallagher and recent signing Zakaria.
