The Chelsea first-team squad was back on the training pitches at Cobham this morning to prepare for our Premier League London derby with Arsenal tomorrow (Tuesday) evening.

Just three days on from our Emirates FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester City, the Blues return to the north side of London for a meeting with Arsenal, and will look to maintain an unbeaten run in the Premier League that lasts more than two months.

Mauricio Pochettino's players were back in training yesterday and continued preparations for the challenge at the Emirates Stadium this morning.

Despite the quick turnaround from our Wembley disappointment, Pochettino says the mood in the camp has already lifted.

'The mood is good because we played a very good game,' the Blues head coach explained at his pre-match press conference. 'We played so well against a team that is one of the best in the world.

'I think our performance was really good, there were positive things we need to take. We conceded a goal in the last few minutes that we should not concede but that is part of football.'

Chelsea could be without the services of leading goalscorer Cole Palmer for the Arsenal trip, with illness preventing him from taking part in training. A decision on his availability will be taken closer to kick-off.

Our second-highest scorer this season, Nicolas Jackson, was involved in today's session and Pochettino has praised the Senegalese forward's all-round game.

'He is doing fantastic and an amazing job for the team, running, scoring goals, giving assists. In his first season, for a young guy coming from Spain without too much experience, he is doing fantastic

'He is going to have all my support because even if doesn’t score, he is fighting for the club, fighting for his teammates and the team, and producing chances of himself alone.'

'He needs time to improve. He is going to be better next season, for sure. There is no doubt about that. He just needs to keep going.'

Raheem Sterling was another forward involved in today's session. He overcame an illness of his own last week to appear from the substitutes' bench during our FA Cup semi-final.

The England international has a strong record when facing the Gunners having scored eight Premier League goals against the north Londoners over the course of his career.

The Blues drew 2-2 with Arsenal in the reverse fixture back in October at Stamford Bridge. Palmer opened the scoring that night before Ukrainian winger Mykhailo Mudryk got our second just after half-time.

Mudryk was also putting in the hard work in training today and will be in contention to feature at the Emirates.
