    Fans return to English football for the first time in almost six months at the Amex Stadium this afternoon.

    Following the green light from the Government, Brighton made 2,500 tickets available to home fans for today’s pre-season friendly against Chelsea.

    Frank Lampard could hand debuts to two of his new signings in Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech on the south coast in a game between two sides also due to meet in the Premier League on September 14.

    A first start in Brighton colours for Adam Lallana, who joined on a free transfer from Premier League champions Liverpool earlier this summer.

    There is also an Amex debut for Joel Veltman, the Dutch right-back who was signed from Ajax in a bargain deal in July.

    Former Chelsea transfer target Lewis Dunk captains Graham Potter’s side as usual after putting pen to paper on a new five-year contract last week, while former Blues defender Tariq Lamptey is on the hosts’ bench.

    Ben White also starts in defence for Brighton after returning from a hugely impressive loan stint at Leeds, who were desperate to sign him on a permanent deal.

    Subs: Walton, Sanchez, Bernardo, Duffy, Burn, Stephens, Lamptey, Gross, Molumby, Connolly, Mac Allister, Jahanbakhsh, Gyokeres, Sanders

    While we wait for those lineups to drop, here’s a further look at fans returning to English football for the first time in almost six months…

    Today’s fixture at the Amex Stadium is most notable for being the first English game to allow fans in attendance since before the coronavirus shutdown.

    After seeing the game named on a list of pilot test events for the return of supporters to elite sport by the Government in midweek, Brighton made 2,500 tickets available to season-ticket holders and 1901 Club members.

    Those tickets were sold across staggered windows on a loyalty points basis, with no tickets available to Chelsea fans.

    Live stream: The game will be available to stream both on Chelsea’s official website and Brighton’s streaming service MyAlbion Digital.

    Hello and welcome to Standard Sport’s LIVE coverage of the pre-season friendly between Brighton and Chelsea!

    Live stream: The game will be available to stream both on Chelsea’s official website and Brighton’s streaming service MyAlbion Digital.

    Chelsea fans will finally get a chance to see Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech in action after their respective high-profile arrivals.

    The match will likely come too soon for recent acquisitions Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr – with the latter set to head straight out on loan.
