The Blues spent time in Ireland, playing two games before travelling to Japan, where we also played two games.

Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero claims the trip to Ireland and Japan has been great for team bonding and believes it has given Chelsea boss Frank Lampard the opportunity to take a closer look at the squad.

“We have had a great pre-season so far and the time we spent in Ireland and Japan was very important,” Caballero said, according to Chelsea’s official website.

“We have a good mix of young players and more senior members of the team involved and it has been great for us to all bond together, but also it’s very important for the new manager to work with us all.

“It helps the manager have a good look at the squad close up and we have a fantastic base of a team here.

“The manager has been great with us so far. He played at this club for a long time and won many trophies here, and he wants the same for us as players and for him as the head coach.

“We have to be ready to work hard, he’s told us that, and that we have a lot of talent in the squad. It’s an exciting time to be at the club.”
