(Video): Chelsea train with a major first team player missing

SkySports are showing videos of Chelsea training in Kiev ahead of tomorrow’s game against Dynamo Kiev, without Gonzalo Higuain who was left back in England, presumably to rest.

That makes an exception for Maurizio Sarri, who has taken all the rest of his important players to the Ukraine for this tie.

Higuain has looked up and down in recent weeks, shining at times but still always looking a step off the pace.

Hopefully another break like this will help him find that step again, and we hope he’s tucked up at home watching the Champions League on TV, resting his legs for some massive games to come.
