BLUES TRAIN IN THE RAIN

In a change to preparations for the last Champions League group game, the Chelsea squad trained at Cobham on Monday morning prior to departure for Germany.

Ahead of the match against Steaua Bucharest at the beginning of the month, the players flew to the Romanian capital and trained in the stadium on the eve of the game, but this week Jose Mourinho opted for our own facilities for his final session before the team take on Schalke on Tuesday evening.

On a wet day in Surrey, Ashley Cole and Andre Schurrle, who missed the victory over Cardiff on Saturday, were involved in the training session.

On arrival at the airport in Germany later today, Mourinho and one of the players will be speaking at a media conference scheduled to start at 5.30pm UK time.

There will be coverage of that on our @chelseafc Twitter feed.
