Chelsea have spent most of the week in the media spotlight, but the mood in the Blues camp appears to be good ahead of their clash against Manchester City.

The defending Premier League champions are making the journey north for their game at Etihad Stadium after a disappointing 2-2 draw with Swansea City at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

Radamel Falcao and Nemanja Matic enjoyed a joke at the expense of Kurt Zouma on Twitter after the Chelsea pair caught the France international trying to sneak forty winks on the team coach.

Mercilessly, Chelsea midfielder Matic posted the snap of Zouma sleeping on his Twitter account.

Chelsea lost ground on their title rivals Manchester City and Manchester United after Jose Mourinho’s side failed to beat Swansea last weekend.
