It’s Friday, and it’s pre-season, so that means it’s another fresh new edition of pre-season Chelsea Unseen. Hopefully this won’t get taken down after a few hours for no particular reason whatsoever, then re-uploaded later, just to cause additional confusion like last week’s video was.
Other than the few seconds with new kid on the block Antonio Rüdiger, this episode of Unseen is dedicated entirely to training, as the extended squad return from their summer vacations and get ready to work work work and fight fight fight for the season ahead. Not too many smiles just yet.
There are lots of familiar faces — with only Hazard (injury) and Costa (pending transfer) missing — and there are lots of slightly unfamiliar or somewhat forgotten faces as well. A brief glimpse of Kalas, a quick burst from Musonda Jr, Kenedy looking strong and mean and ready for business, just to mention a few.
At the center of it all is of course Antonio Conte, decked out in Nike training gear, whistle in hand, ready to work his magic once again.
