After a supremely busy week, which saw Chelsea play three times in seven days (and win three times in seven days!), the Blues have a short break before another busy stretch of twice weekly games through the first week of the new year.
After a brief holiday for the players (except the likes of Eden Hazard, who stayed behind for treatment), the squad were back in training on Wednesday, held at Stamford Bridge under the watchful eyes of the still-visiting terrible darts player Frank "Chelsea Dagger" Lampard, as well as a few Sky Sports cameras.
Good to see Frank Lampard at training today. Watch our interview with the great man himself on Chelsea TV tonight— Lee Parker (@Leeparker_tv) December 21, 2016
Also joining the training was young Charly Musonda, who, just like Kenedy at Watford, has cut short his loan at Real Betis and is back with Chelsea. For now, anyway.
A familiar face. 4 Belgians trained with the Chelsea first squad today, including Charly Musonda Junior. #CFC will cut short his loan deal. pic.twitter.com/UgJIdi7srZ— Kristof Terreur (@HLNinEngeland) December 21, 2016
Nothing has decided on Charly Musonda's future: all options still open. A new loan looks likely, unless he convinces Conte. #cfc— Kristof Terreur (@HLNinEngeland) December 21, 2016
Chelsea TV posted a stylized video as well. Abusing that poor slow-motion function.
Chelsea will be training all the way through Christmas as our clash against AFC Bournemouth at the Bridge on Boxing Day approaches.
