Ziyech and Werner look sharp in training, but can't help Chelsea v Bayern Munich

Chelsea new signings Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner took part in training as the team prepares for their Champions League match against Bayern Munich.

The Blues are now getting ready for what will likely to be their final game of the season against the Bundesliga champions.

The odds are stacked against them after the 3-0 loss in the first leg at Stamford Bridge back in February, along with injury and suspension problems ahead of this game.

Both Jorginho and Marcos Alonso will not be available after the yellow card and the red card they received in the first leg, respectively.

While several other players including Billy Gilmour (knee), Christian Pulisic (hamstring), Cesar Azpilicueta (hamstring) and Pedro Rodriguez (shoulder) will also be out due to injuries.

N’Golo Kante (unused on the bench), Willian, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek who missed the FA Cup final against Arsenal last weekend are also in doubt to feature since Chelsea manager Frank Lampard could want to avoid any further risk of injuries ahead of the start to Premier League new campaign on September 12.

They still have to prepare for the game, however, and the training sessions could help as early preparation for the new season.

As we can see from the footage shared by the club on social media, both Ziyech and Werner look very sharp in finishing training sessions, along with teammates Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi.

Unfortunately, as much as Chelsea might need extra firepower to beat the unlikely odds, both Ziyech and Werner won’t be eligible to play against Bayern Munich.
