Obviously, it’s nothing really special for most of the squad, but for this was a new experience for the two new signings; Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

Particularly for Werner, as Ziyech has visited the stadium in last year’s thrilling 4-4 draw between Chelsea and Ajax in the Champions League group stage back in November.

The Germany international wrote on Instagram: “First time on the pitch at the Bridge. Feels fantastic!”

Ruben Loftus-Cheek also shared his moment during today’s training at Stamford Bridge as he certainly looks for a comeback season after a long-term injury and few setbacks last season.
