Project Restart: Chelsea open training grounds

With 'Project Return' underway, Chelsea has asked ts players to return to England and start the fitness journey, as the league looks to resume in mid-June.

Part of the Blues' squad is back in London and have started to filter back for outdoor training sessions in isolated spaces, while others have to self-isolate for 14 days.

That is in accordance with the UK government's advice for anyone returning to Britain from abroad.

Christian Pulisic, Willian, Pedro, Marcos Alonso, Emerson Palmieri, Kepa Arrizabalaga, and Andreas Christensen are the players in question.

None of the coaching squad will be at the grounds but manager Frank Lampard is hopeful all will go well.

"We have plans and we have tried to vary it week-by-week. It has been a long time now with the players in this situation. Some of them have been able to go to Cobham if they live close to our training ground and work there in probably a safer environment," he said.

"Of course, on their own and they all get their own slots so they don't see anybody else who has just gone. I think most clubs are doing something similar. I think this is a leveler for all of football.

"Everybody is in the same boat and we have been just trying to do the right thing and the best thing in terms of keeping the players fit."

There will be a medical team watching the players from a distance.
