Sterling spent the previous three days engaging in both individual and team training before his £47.5 million transfer from Man City was formally announced on Wednesday morning. However, Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel said in his pre-game press conference that it was doubtful the England international would play, and that has proven to be the case.
Given that Koulibaly hasn't yet participated in a single training session with his new Chelsea teammates, it was never thought that the Senegal international would play in the friendly. Koulibaly's departure from Napoli was only formally announced late last night, U.S. time.
Tuchel appears to have stuck with the tried and true 3-4-2-1 formation for this evening's match at Allegiant Stadium, despite considering switching to a back four this summer.

Starting in goal for the Blues is Kepa Arrizabalaga, who is backed up by a Trevoh Chalobah, Thiago Silva, and Malang Sarr-led defense. Callum Hudson-Odoi is chosen for the right wing-back position, and Ben Chilwell makes his first start on the other side of the field following his recovery from a knee ligament injury.
Hakim Ziyech begins the attack on the right of the three, while Kai Havertz lines up in the centre. Kenedy makes a startling move to the right of the frontline. After being brought back from a loan stint in Brazil, the Brazilian made only two appearances in the second half of the previous season.

Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly, two new Chelsea players who have officially joined the team in Las Vegas, have not yet completed enough training sessions to be eligible to play against Club America. The Blues will finish their U.S. tour by playing MLS club Charlotte FC on July 20 and London rivals Arsenal on July 23 in Charlotte and Orlando, respectively. On August 6, Chelsea will host Everton to open their Premier League campaign.

On Wednesday, July 20, Club America will play Manchester City before resuming to Liga MX action on Saturday, July 23, in Tijuana for Matchday 4 of the Apertura season.
