Best Shots From Chelseas Entertaining Mini Training Ground Match Yesterday Which Ended In A 1-1 Draw

The 2021/22 league season is almost upon us and clubs have intensified their pre-season preparations. Friendly games are now being played regularly with the Hope's of getting the players physically and psychologically fit for the new season. Over at Chelsea, the blues, just like the other big teams have stepped up their pre-season preparations. The training ground is buzzing and just like we expect, the players are in high spirit.

Yesterday, Chelsea cancelled their proposed pre-season friendly against Irish side Drogheda because of Covid 19 fears. The blues had to pull out because of the risks associated with playing the game yesterday. But it wasn't a problem for Thomas Tuchel and his coaching staff as they organised a mini training ground game for the players yesterday. The squad was split into two, and each side consisted of about 9 players. We have very few details from the game except that it ended in a 1-1 draw and the goals were scored by Armando Broja and Calum Hudson Odoi for either side. Thomas Tuchel did make a rule saying that the team to lose would sing a Backstreet Boys song before team dinner. Below are the pictures from the mini-game yesterday...

The winning team.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience for the players and the coaching staff. Despite the absence of new recruitments, Thomas Tuchel does not seem bothered by that. The German gaffer is making the best usage of what's available to him at Cobham.
