Chelsea returned to training at Cobham today as Mauricio Pochettino and his players began working towards Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Liverpool at Wembley.

The Blues take on Liverpool under the famous arch and there is the potential for the first trophy of the Pochettino era at Stamford Bridge to be claimed.

On Tuesday, the Chelsea squad reunited at Cobham for the first time following the 1-1 draw at Manchester City on Saturday evening, a result that extended our unbeaten run away from home to three games in all competitions.

Despite putting in one of our best defensive performances of the season in Manchester, there is little time for reflection as the focus firmly shifts to Sunday's final and reclaiming the Carabao Cup for the first time since 2015.

Raheem Sterling was one of those being put through his paces this morning at our training base, and the England international will be hoping to add on his fine goal at the Etihad this weekend.

The forward spent time at Liverpool earlier in his career, making 129 appearances for the Reds between 2011 and 2015.

But it was just a stone's throw away from Wembley, in the London borough of Brent, that Sterling honed his skills as a boy.

And playing on home turf has previously brought the best out of the 29-year-old, who struck three goals at the national stadium on England's run to the Euro 2020 final.

Goalkeeper Robert Sanchez was also involved in training after missing our trip to the Etihad due to what Pochettino confirmed at the weekend was a personal issue.

The Spain international is competing with Djordje Petrovic for a spot between the sticks at Wembley, with both players having already featured three times in the competition this season.

Sanchez started in our victories over Wimbledon, Brighton and Blackburn, while Petrovic played in the quarter-final win against Newcastle and both legs of the semi-final success against Middlesbrough.

Another Blue hoping to enjoy a first game at Wembley in Chelsea colours is defender Levi Colwill, who produced an impressive display in his favoured role of centre-back against Man City.

‘Coming through the Academy, you’re taught that this is a club for winners. It’s part of our philosophy,' Colwill explained in our exclusive interview with the defender ahead of the showpiece game at Wembley.

‘So we’ve got to go there and do everything to win. That is what I expect from myself, that is what expected when you’re at Chelsea.

‘Personally, it would be big [to win]. But it’s not about me, it’s about the club. We want to show we’re winners, that we can lift trophies for Chelsea. That is what we’re going there to do.’
