UEFA Champions League

Chelsea players undergo final training before game against Arsenal (See photos)

London side, Chelsea FC host fellow Londoner, Arsenal at Stamford Bridge this evening in a London derby which highlights the two sides’ contrasting fortunes this season.

Chelsea have really been a team transformed under the guidance of German tactician, Thomas Tuchel, having become the most solid team in Europe while also gradually starting to show quality in terms of their attacking ideas. This has shown recently in the Blues’ journey to the UEFA Champions League final and the comeback win against EPL winners, Man City the last time out.

Arsenal, on the other hand, are a shadow of themselves. They will be going trophy less this season and will also miss out of European competitions next season.

As part of preparations for the match, Chelsea players were seen participating in their final training session. The photos of the players were posted on Chelsea's official Twitter page.

Some of the players spotted include: Callum Hudson-Odoi, Thiago Silva, Ben Chill-well among others.

Mateo Kovacic and Andreas Christensen didn't participate in the group training as they're still sidelined by injuries.

See photos from the training below:

Chelsea will be looking to further stamp their place in European football next season and will be going all out for the maximum points.

The last time they faced, Arsenal triumphed by a 3 goals to 1 win at the Emirates Stadium. It's surely going to be a different ball game today.
