Alexandre Pato gave the thumbs up after Thursday’s Chelsea training session as the Blues prepare for their FA Cup clash with Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

The Brazilian forward is yet to make his first appearance for the west London club since joining the Blues on loan from Corinthians until the end of the season last month.

Pato has been working on his fitness levels in recent weeks as he bids to prove himself as ready for a starting spot in Guus Hiddink’s first team.

And the former AC Milan striker certainly looks to be enjoying himself as he settles into life at Chelsea, if the photo above posted on the club’s official Instagram account is anything to go by.
