What Tuchel did to ensure Saul Niguez is ready to make his debut against Aston Villa

Saul Niguez completed his move to Chelsea on transfer deadline day and has been training at Cobham with several Chelsea players away on international duty.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been working to get players like Saul and Ben Chilwell fit ahead of Chelsea’s first game after the international break against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.

According to Football London, Tuchel organised an in-house game at Cobham today between the first-team players not selected for international duty and the club’s Development Squad.

Players like Kepa Arrizabalga, Trevoh Chalobah, Ben Chilwell, Marcos Alonso, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Saul were involved in the friendly to build their fitness ahead of the game against Aston Villa.
