Following their impressive 2-1 victory over Watford last time out, the league leaders Chelsea are back in Premier League action with an early kickoff on Saturday away to Westham United in a London Derby.
A few of the Blues have been sidelined and won’t be available for the trip to the London stadium including Ben Chilwell, Trevor Chalobah, Mateo Kovacic and N’golo Kante among others. Thomas Tuchel however on Friday confirmed that Jorginho Frello and Reece James are back from injuries and are available for selection come Saturday afternoon.
Both Jorginho and James missed out on the last encounter against Watford but are fully back with the group heading to Westham.
The blues have been undergoing training ahead of the clash with the hammers but on Friday, the European champions embark on a different style of training.
Thomas Tuchel and his men trained the way rugby players prepares for that sort of sport. Westham United are a physical team especially the frontline led by Michelle Antonio and on the backline former Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma who joined the hammers last summer.
They will be hoping to stop Antonio pace and power while keeping in mind Zouma’s aerial abilities.
Below are some photos of the Blues in training ahead of clash with David Moyes’s men at the London Stadium:

The West Londoners are currently occupying the top spot on the pile and a win at Westham will keep them on top throughout game week 15. With Manchester City and Liverpool following up closely in second and third place, any result other than a win for the Blues will depend on results elsewhere to keep them on top at the end of the game week.
