Photos: Diego Costa, Nemanja Matic look to impress new Chelsea manager
Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic are put through their paces along with the Chelsea squad on Monday
Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic trained with the rest of their Chelsea team-mates on Monday as the Blues squad looked to impress their new manager Antonio Conte.
The west London side have a point to prove to their Premier League rivals following their dismal defence of their top-flight crown last term.
Jose Mourinho was sacked in December less than six months after winning the Premier League following a run of nine defeats to start their campaign.
Guus Hiddink took over the reins for the remainder of the season, while Chelsea announced that Conte would be the next permanent manager following Euro 2016.
Costa and Matic were two of Chelsea’s big names that failed to match their high standards from the previous season as the Blues faltered in all competitions.
Here is a round-up of the best training photos from Chelsea’s Cobham facility on Monday afternoon as the Blues posted some snaps on their Instagram page, while some of the squad members treated their followers to some training photos.
