Chelsea returned to Cobham this morning for training as they get set for Everton battle later tonight at Goodison Park.
The Blues as usual were in high spirits with prospects of going top of the table with a win tomorrow depending on results from Tottenham and Liverpool.
We shall take a look at key observations from training today ahead of Merseyside trip.
Pulisic is indeed ready for tonight’s clash
Blues fans were thrown into anxiety after Chelsea midweek draw against Krasnodar in the Champions League with concerns of Christian Pulisic injured, with manager, Frank Lampard later refusing to confirm whether the winger again suffered another injury.
Pulisic was captured looking as feet as ever with no shade of injury ahead of Everton clash.
Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi Absent
Hopes were raised earlier of a potential return to training for either of the injured duo after coach Frank Lampard confirmed a period of two weeks on the sidelines for both players.
Neither Hakim Ziyech nor Callum Hudson-Odoi made it to training today as both players continue to recover from their respective hamstring injuries.
Tino Anjorin looked ready for imminent opportunities
19-year-old Anjorin is having the best period of his emerging professional footballing career after earlier intimation from Frank Lampard on the teenager remaining with the first team for the foreseeable future after Tuesday’s impressive outing from the Nigerian descent.
Anjorin looked sharp on the ball today with the manager looking pleased with his amazing ball control and overall performance at Cobham.
Kepa once again fumbled at goal
Kepa failed to impress during training today with the Spaniard letting in almost all shots fired at his goal.
The 26-year-old has fallen under ‘justifiable’ criticisms since his abysmal form for the Blues, prompting the arrival of Edouard Mendy from Stade Rennes this summer.
Olivier Giroud set to start tonight after impressing much at Cobham
Olivier Giroud put up yet another impressive show-off today at Cobham and seems ready to further his new starting role with Lampard looking quite impressed with the Frenchman.
