Blues arrive in France

Maurizio Sarri and his players touched down in Nice this evening ahead of tomorrow’s friendly against Inter Milan in the South of France.

The group has been strengthened by the return of Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Toni Rudiger, Victor Moses and Willy Caballero following their involvement at the World Cup. All five players missed the recent trip to Australia but have travelled to Nice, along with new signing Rob Green.

The 23-man squad will train tomorrow morning at the Allianz Riviera Stadium, the venue for the game, which kicks off at 8.05pm local time.

The match will be the second fixture between ourselves and Inter in the space of a year after we met in Singapore last July as part of our pre-season preparations.
