Antonio Conte rewarded the squad with three days off while Diego Costa was given an extra day off from training to spend more time in Brazil with family and friends.

Thibaut Courtois spent his by travelling to the United States while Chalobah and Begovic visited Paris.

Antonio Conte revealed he gave the team three days off to recover from the intensity of the Premier League.

“Yes, I gave them three days off because I thought that my players deserved this after a really intense period,” Conte said.

“We played three games in six days and I thought that the best way to recover was to have three days off.”

When questioned about the players allowed to travel anywhere in the world, Conte added: “Well, when you get three days off you don’t know the destination of our players.

“But I think the most important thing is to recover, to not only do so with your body but also your head.”
