Chelsea will attempt to finish the season off in style against Bournemouth and the Blues have been working hard in preparation for our final game of the 2023/24 campaign.

Victory in our final Premier League game of the season would not only maintain recent fine form but also secure European qualification.

Even a draw would be enough to ensure we play in the UEFA Europa League or Conference League next season. A fifth placed finish - and automatic Europa qualification - could also still be a possibility if current occupiers Tottenham Hotspur lose at Sheffield United.

Training was followed by Pochettino's pre-match press conference, where the head coach said: 'The most important thing now is to be seen to perform and trying to compete in the best way. Bournemouth are a tough game and are playing so well, so yes it’s tough.

'But it’s important to finish well and see, after, if we have the chances to get the place. Being fifth would be amazing for us.'

Christopher Nkunku was one of those spotted working hard at Cobham as he pushes for a return to the starting eleven.

Nkunku has appeared from the bench in our previous three outings, scoring in the Blues' midweek win at Brighton.

Likewise, Ben Chilwell also trained in the Surrey sunshine, the Blues' full-back having returned to the matchday squad in the win on the coast.

Chilwell remained an unused substitute for that one but will be hopeful of appearing in Sunday's season closer.

Fellow defender Thiago Silva cut a relaxed figure at training ahead of his final game for the club.

The Brazilian's four-year spell at Stamford Bridge will come to an end when he returns to his native Brazil with Fluminense in the summer.

Chelsea legend Ron Harris was also visiting Cobham today as the Blues' record appearance maker and his family spent time meeting Pochettino and the players.
