Chelsea beat Reading in Cobham friendly

Chelsea’s preparations for the season restart continued today with a behind-closed-doors friendly against Reading at Cobham.

The Blues met the Championship side at our training ground to help build up match fitness, with the top-flight’s resumption just a week-and-a-half away now. It follows on from the in-house match contested at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Today Chelsea won 1-0 courtesy of a first-half goal from Pedro. N'Golo Kante, who returned to contact training yesterday, was among those involved, as were Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour. 

In the Reading ranks, current Chelsea loanee Matt Miazga featured, while there was a Cobham return for former Blue, John Swift.
