2 key players missing in Chelsea’s last training at Cobham today ahead of Real Madrid UCL tie



2 key players missing in Chelsea's last training at Cobham today ahead of Real Madrid UCL tie
Chelsea rounded off preparations for our Champions League quarter-final first leg against Real Madrid with one last training session at Cobham this morning.

The Blues host the Spanish league leaders at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night in a repeat of last season’s semi-final tie and Thomas Tuchel will have almost a fully-fit squad available following our final runout on the grass.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and long-term injury absentee Ben Chilwell were the only two missing on a gloomy morning at our Surrey training base as a 24-man group were put through their paces by Tuchel and his staff.

Christian Pulisic was in that number having missed our weekend defeat to Brentford, while Reece James also took part following a 34-minute cameo against the Bees, his first match involvement in almost a month.

We’ve selected the best of the images from the session for you to enjoy below…
