Chelsea players practice their basketball skills

Posted by - August 13, 2013 - Chelsea

With just a few days until the new season starts, some of Chelsea’s players have been putting the finishing touches… to their basketball skills.

Many of the Blues’ squad are away on international duty this week, so those left behind at the club’s Cobham training ground had a fairly relaxed session that involved shooting some hoops.

John Terry and Michael Essien were among those taking part in the game.

Meanwhile, somewhere in Belgium…

That’s right: Romelu Lukaku was giving slam dunk tutorials.

It seems Chelsea’s players are determined to be the Premier League’s best basketball team this season.
