Gallery: Blues prepare for Tottenham

Chelsea players were back at Cobham this morning after a much needed two days rest after the draw with Brighton on Tuesday night.

The Blues take to the Stamford Bridge pitch for the first time in the Premier League since the draw with Liverpool on January 2 this Sunday, and today Thomas Tuchel increased our preparations for our third match with Spurs in just three weeks.

The boss had a welcome boost as defender Trevoh Chalobah returned to training after missing the last five matches with a hamstring issue. However, the Bavarian stated earlier in his pre-match press conference that the defender will not be available for Sunday’s match.

Reece James was out on the grass stepping up his recovery from injury away from the main group, while Andreas Christensen remains out after his positive Covid test last week.
