Chelsea 5-0 Stoke City, Tunnel Cam: Drinkwater volleys, celebrity guest, Hazard skills

New, comment

Another nice, long tunnel cam from the Chelsea TV crew following Chelsea’s 5-0 romp over Stoke City on Saturday, featuring all the usual tunnel cam goodness, plus a few extra fun things.

Player arrivals, departures, and warm-ups all feature in good detail, with the latter involving a rather telling practiced shot from Danny Drinkwater, who takes a knee control from a Chelsea coach with the outside of his boot on the volley. Drinkwater would of course go on to score a very similar goal in the game itself, providing both the control and the finish in what may be a leading candidate for December’s goal of the month.

Stamford Bridge often plays host to a wide and varied range of celebrities, and yesterday’s VIP guest was Jeff Garlin, whom you might know from Curb Your Enthusiasm. Here he’s chatting it up with the ever-excitable Jason Candy while our friend Jake Cohen snagged a picture with him, too.

One final note is the customary post-match training session for those who didn’t start, which features Eden Hazard messing around and showing off, as well as Andreas Christensen moving freely and taking full part in the drills — amusing to see the two Stoke players observing the resistance band madness, too. Hopefully this means that Andreas will be ready to start on Wednesday at Arsenal.
