Numbers are growing at Cobham, and not just because Chelsea returned early from training camp in Dublin, with several familiar and missing faces arriving today from their summer breaks.
As seen in the clip posted by the Chelsea social media team, we now have all the players from Euro 2020 back except those who reached the later knockout rounds, and we also have a few lesser spotted older loanees in the house, including Tiémoué Bakayoko and Kenedy.

Hi there, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Toni Rüdiger, Mateo Kovačić, Kurt Zouma, and, last but certainly not least, N’Golo Kanté! It is well known that rubbing N’Golo’s head will bring seven years of good luck.
So, all smiles and good vibes, which is certainly great to see. Well okay, except maybe Kenedy, Bakayoko, and Michy Batshuayi, but maybe they were still just a bit sleepy. It happens.
Time to get some blood flowing into those legs!
