Under-fire manager Antonio Conte took charge of his team’s training yesterday as they prepare for the clash against Barcelona on Tuesday. The Blues must be ready for a very crunch tie against the former La Liga Champions who have returned back to winning ways after two consecutive draws.
There are some facts noticed during Chelsea training at the Cobham ground.
Conte is feeling the Cold Weather
Antonio Conte seems to be affected by the cold weather during the training session. The Italian manager was seen putting two hands in his pocket which looks like someone who is avoiding exposing his hands to the weather.
Chelsea Players Look Determined to Pull a Surprise
Chelsea players are in high morale heading into the game after winning their last two matches by a wide goal-margin. Against West Brom, the Blues were 3-0 Victors and against Hull City in the FA Cup fixture last weekend, Conte’s men thrashed the Tigers 4-0.
Chelsea’s confidence level is high and that was obvious in their training session as they trained intensively and courageously hoping that they could pull up a surprise against the Blaugranas.
Injured Players Missing Out
Chelsea are not complete in terms of first-team players as some players are set to be missed for the match. Ross Barkley, David Luiz and Bakayoko were all out and they were excused from the training as expected.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will want to convince the Blues hierarchy that he deserves a new contract extension by defeating the Catalans in Today’s game.
