Chelsea are in Japan, getting into some pretty intense looking preseason training in the heat and humidity.
The pictures shared by the club and various players on social media show some very sweaty looking Blues ramping up their preparations for the new season day by day, now on the other side of the world.
There also seemed to be some pretty nasty ear flicking forfeits for the lads who weren’t up to scratch in the two touch games – that’s straight from the Frank Lampard-era Chelsea playbook!
You can see a selection of the players’ social media reactions to the heavy duty preseason sessions in the Tweets and Instagram posts embedded below:
