Only Christian Pulisic from the regular squad was missing from Tuesday morning’s training session, which was streamed live for fans to watch via The 5th Stand and chelseafc.com.
The session is the final one before we take on Malmo tomorrow at Stamford Bridge in what is a highly important group-stage fixture. We play the Swedish side in back-to-back fixtures having won our opener at home to Zenit St Petersburg but then lost away at Juventus last time out in this competition.
Toni Rudiger was involved in training today, as he was yesterday after missing the Brentford game at the weekend with an injury suffered on international duty. Thiago Silva was also absent from Saturday’s derby due to Brazil’s schedule, but he has been involved with the main group since then.
Hakim Ziyech also missed Brentford due to illness but has been training this week and did so today.
