Ancelotti's medical team minimised injuries to such an extent he was able to trim his first-team squad from 34 to 24. The Italian has been impressed with the facilities and medical staff at Chelsea's training base in Surrey, but he will make small adjustments to bring his knowledge from Milan.
"We want to do all we can to prevent injuries occurring because that was a big part of what we did at Milan," the Chelsea manager told the Daily Mail. "It's about prevention rather than treatment.
"We pay a lot of attention to this because we have a good organisation to control the physical training. We want to integrate some of the things we did at Milan. We want to look at nutrition, hydration and all sorts of things."
