Chelsea have safely arrived in Austria a few hours ago, ahead of a week-long training camp and a couple friendlies against Rapid Vienna (tomorrow) and RZ Pellets WAC (Wednesday).

As is usually the case with pre-season preparations in years with major summer tournaments, some of the biggest names in the squad will be re-joining the team only later. The initial training groups and lineups for friendlies will involve a lot of fringe names, loan warriors, or prospects from the Academy.
The 24-man squad confirmed by the club to have joined the group in Austria includes a healthy mix of first-team veterans, promising youngsters, and a few future trivia answers.
