Chelsea show off wonderful first-touch passing and skill in extended training video

New, comments

There's been palpable improvement across the board at Chelsea Football Club this season, from the results on the pitch, to the success of the player recruitment operation, to the narratives surrounding the players and staff, and even to the team's official social media and in-house TV operations.

There was a time when we were popping champagne any time Chelsea posted a video longer than 30 seconds to YouTube; now we're getting weekly behind the scenes features, weekly review and preview shows, and even lengthy interviews with the players and staff. We're not in danger of being as good as Manchester City's operations in this regard, but just as on the pitch compared to last season, we've made great strides and closed the gap.

So with that glowing introduction, let's enjoy these glorious five minutes of Chelsea training, in what appears to be an exercise of one-touch team football at Cobham, before the scene switches to a larger-pitch exercise at the stadium itself. Is that Mikel playing center back-ish?
