Morning training before attention moves to Madrid
news Tue 26 Sep 2017
The players have trained at Cobham ahead of their flight to Madrid later today with only one player, Danny Drinkwater, not involved.
It is the first time since February 2016 we hit the road in Europe with Atletico Madrid our opponents tomorrow evening at their new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. Antonio Conte led out his squad on a pleasant morning at Cobham in front of assembled media who watched the first 15 minutes.
Drinkwater is injured but otherwise Conte has everyone available to him, including five Spaniards returning to their native country and another man, Thibaut Courtois, who is very familiar with our opponents from his time at Atletico.
