Chelsea players return to training pitch

Chelsea's non-World Cup players have returned to the training pitch.

While the likes of Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Kalidou Koulibaly are impressing in Qatar, many Chelsea players have remained in London.

They have continued to train at Cobham with Potter preparing for the Premier League's return.

The Blues host Bournemouth on December 27th in their first game back after the World Cup break.

But first Chelsea will play Aston Villa in a friendly in ten days to help players maintain their match sharpness.

The likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Jorginho and Trevoh Chalobah were back in training on Thursday.

Marc Cucurella was also involved along with several Chelsea youngsters, including Omari Hutchinson.

The wonderkid was named on the bench as Chelsea lost to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup last month.

Hutchinson was set to join up with Jamaica before Chelsea stepped in and encouraged him to stay in London.

Hutchinson, who has represented England at U17 and U19 level, won his first cap for the Reggae Boyz back in May.
