over Reading in a back-closed-door friendly at Cobham.
Chelsea’s season restart preparations continued yesterday with this friendly.
The Blues trained on their training ground with the Championship team to help build up match fitness, with the resumption of the top-flight only a week and a half away.
Among those involved were N’Golo Kante, who returned to touch training yesterday, as well as Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour.
Present Chelsea loanee Matt Miazga appeared in Reading ranks while former Blue, John Swift, had a Cobham return.
Chelsea won, courtesy of Pedro’s first-half goal. This match followed Saturday’s home match contested at Stamford Bridge.
