The Blues were back in training at Cobham today as the players began preparations for our FA Cup third-round tie with Morecambe.

We open our 2020/21 FA Cup campaign when we host our League Two opposition at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon. After being given a couple of days to recuperate from their exertions during the heavy Christmas fixture schedule, the team were back on the training pitch today under the watchful eye of head coach Frank Lampard and his staff.

With the winter well set in by now there was plenty for our newer foreign signings to learn about the joys of the English weather and mud before their introduction to the FA Cup, but the weather couldn't dampen the squad's enthusiasm, perhaps helped by the presence of several young Academy players among their number.

Our cameras where there at Cobham to capture the best images from today's training session for you...
