5 Things I Observed From Chelsea's Training Session Today

Ahead of tomorrow's Champions League clash against Zenit St Petersburg, Chelsea players had some training sessions today at cobham. Here are five things I observed from today's training.

1. Chelsea's youth goalkeeper Lucas Bergstrom trained with the squad today, the 19 year old got listed in Chelsea's Champions League B list and could be available tomorrow. Lucas Bergstrom hasn't made his professional debut for Chelsea, with the quality of goalkeepers in the squad it would be difficult to get into the first team. Lucas Bergstrom will have to prove himself worthy of being in Chelsea's first team before he gets his professional debut.

2. N'golo Kante trained with the squad today. He missed all three of France international games and missed Chelsea's game against Aston Villa, Thomas Tuchel already ruled him out against Zenit St Petersburg. Thomas Tuchel made it known that he wouldn't want to take risks, he has preserved N'golo Kante for next week's London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

3. Chelsea's outcast Ross Barkley trained with the squad today. Thomas Tuchel included the Englishman in the squad to face Zenit St Petersburg tomorrow. Barkley is yet to play a single game under Thomas Tuchel, he pushed to exit the club last summer but it didn't fall through. He's still trying to fight his way back into Chelsea's team.

4. Malang Sarr is still yet to make his debut for Chelsea. The Frenchman was also included in the squad to face Zenit St Petersburg. He had some brilliant pre season with Chelsea, but Thomas Tuchel didn't grant him a chance when the league began. Chelsea already have quality defenders in their squad, they were eager to sign Jules Kounde from Sevilla last summer but it didn't fall through. Malang Sarr will have to fight his way into Chelsea's squad just like Chalobah did.

5. Ruben Loftus Cheek trained with the squad today. The Englishman was also included in Chelsea's squad to face Zenit St Petersburg tomorrow. Ruben Loftus Cheek had a great pre season with Chelsea but is yet to make an appearance under Thomas Tuchel. There's still a long way to go this season and hopefully he gets a say in Chelsea's team.
