Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Chelsea con­tin­ued their prepa­ra­tions for Sun­day’s Com­mu­nity Shield show­down against Ar­se­nal, with the first-team squad re­turn­ing to train­ing at Cob­ham on Wed­nes­day.

Man­ager An­to­nio Conte had given the play­ers three days off be­cause they were ex­hausted af­ter play­ing three matches in a week dur­ing their tour of China and Sin­ga­pore.

Record sign­ing Al­varo Mo­rata is short on fit­ness, the striker re­ported to Cob­ham a day be­fore the first­team­ers, and trained with the re­cov­er­ing injured play­ers Hazard, Bakayoko and Pe­dro.

Chelsea ex­pert Care­freeYouthþ told all­nige­ri­asoc­cer. com: “De­fend­ers were out around 3pm un­til 4pm, then they went in for gym work while the mid­field­ers and for­wards were out­side at 4-5pm.

“The mid­field­ers and strik­ers were in the gym first while the de­fend­ers were out­side.”

Spain in­ter­na­tional Pe­dro wore a pro­tec­tive mask while train­ing on Wed­nes­day, af­ter suf­fer­ing mul­ti­ple frac­tures in the friendly against Ar­se­nal on July 22.
