Chelsea will reportedly parade the Champions League trophy they won earlier this year when Tottenham visit Stamford Bridge for a pre-season friendly on August 4.

The Blues became European Champions when they beat Manchester City in Porto, on May 29, through Kai Havertz’s first-half winner.

Tottenham announced that, alongside Arsenal and Chelsea, they would be support better mental health by taking part in The Mind Series this summer.

The three clubs in London will take each other on in a first-of-its-kind series of pre-season friendlies in August, just before the 2021/22 season.

Chelsea became the first London club to win the Champions League in 2012. But despite Tottenham reaching the final in 2019, the Blues won the trophy again last summer.

Only 6,000 Blues fans were allowed into the Estadio do Dragao in Porto for the European final so the pre-season friendly will be a good chance for their fans to see the trophy in the flesh.

This was obviously going to happen but it does hurt. A trophy we were so close to getting our hands on being paraded in front of our eyes, by one of our most bitter rivals.

Hopefully, there will be a day where we can show off a trophy to our rivals. You never know.
