The World Cup is only now reaching the sharp end, but we’re already feeling our attention turning back to club action.
Chelsea’s players who weren’t out in Qatar have had a fortnight off, but they’re really gearing up for action now.
They’ve flown out to Abu Dhabi for a training camp, and it’s there that we’ve seen a few familiar faces back in action.
The squad was falling apart due to injuries in the last few weeks, so it’s great to see some vital pieces back on the training pitch.
N’Golo Kante, Wesley Fofana, Ben Chilwell and Reece James are all starters in Graham Potter’s strongest team, but have all been out for some time.
It’s not clear how far along towards match readiness each of them are, but it’s a clear sign that all have a great chance to be back for our first game on the 27th of this month.
