Chelsea have officially started preseason today. Our new boss Frank Lampard and his squad arrived in Dublin earlier this afternoon.
Lampard will use the training camp in Dublin to get to know his squad better, with games against Bohemians and St Patrick’s Athletic scheduled for next week.
Included on the trip to Dublin are Michy Batshuayi, Kurt Zouma, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Kenedy who all spent last season away from Chelsea on loan.
Cesar Azpilicueta, Pedro, Danny Drinkwater, Davide Zappacosta and Willy Caballero also made the trip across the Irish Sea.
Young players like Ethan Ampadu and Trevoh Chalobah also made the trip, looking to impress our new boss Lampard.
Here’s the full list of the squad that arrived Dublin for the preseason training camp:
