Chelsea hit Cobham this morning before their tricky trip to Molineux Stadium later tonight with hopes of bouncing back from disappointing Everton defeat.
The Blues were yesterday paired against Atletico Madrid in the round 16 of the champions league, but manager Frank Lampard was quick to dispel fears of the Spanish side, revealing his lads will take on the battle like any other game.
The West Londoners certainly looked like they feared no one this morning, radiating maximum confidence as they prepared for Wolverhampton trip.
We bring you four key highlights from the Blues training this morning.
Edouard Mendy is on fire
The Senegalese goalkeeper looked sharp and ready for a stunning outing tonight at Wolves after impressing quite much at Cobham.
The 28-year-old was culpable for last week’s conceded penalty at Goodison Park but seemed to have kept that aside with sights of Wolves ahead.
Mendy was on top of his game like before this morning and is certainly geared up for tonight’s encounter at Molineux Stadium.
Pulisic looked to have gotten over his hamstring ‘awareness’
The 22-year-old was dropped for Merseyside trip during the weekend with the gaffer, Frank Lampard later confirming an ‘awareness’ to his hamstring.
The Blues winger seemed to have moved ahead from the ‘awareness’ as he trained with fellow Blues earlier today looking shaved up.
Speaking yesterday ahead of Wolves clash, Lampard intimated a return for the American today but was unsure of starting him.
“He was out for injury with his hamstring. He trained on Saturday. He’s in the squad for tomorrow but yet to be decided if he will start or not. It is positive news from the weekend.” Lampard said.
Coach Frank Lampard seem to have raised the bar for tonight’s clash
The Blues boss was apparently unimpressed with his lads performance at Goodison Park on Saturday and was captured in a higher spirit this morning.
“The Premier League is unforgiven. We weren’t at our top level Saturday and got beaten. We dropped it for a game.
“You don’t go to Everton and expect anything if you don’t perform.” He said yesterday on Everton loss.
The Chelsea boss is clearly in higher demands at Molineux tonight and will charge the players on giving it tonight on the pitch.
Havertz may finally spark to life his Blue career
Havertz looked to be improving on his pace and decisiveness with the ball earlier today at Cobham after and Abysmal outing las weekend at Goodison Park.
The German fell under severe criticisms for inability to contribute impactfully to Chelsea’s game at Everton on Saturday with manager frank Lampard later asking more time for his summer club-record signing.
Perhaps the 21-year-old may finally be en route repaying the manager’s faith in him, also the heavy fee paid to land him from Bayer Leverkusen this summer.
