Cesar Azpilicueta looks like he has been keeping himself in good shape ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Leicester City on Saturday lunchtime.

The defender was overlooked for inclusion in the Spain squad for their recent World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Italy and Albania along with fellow national team-mates Cesc Fabregas and Pedro Rodriguez.

The international break, therefore, has given the trio some time to work on their fitness levels and get to grips with new manager Antonio Conte’s philosophy at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground.

And Azpilicueta seems to be in good shape as the Blues prepare to welcome the defending Premier League champions to Stamford Bridge this weekend.

He shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Training! ⚽🏃🏻#CFC #chelseafc”

Chelsea head into the game on the back of their 2-0 win over Hull City before the international break.

The Blues are currently seventh and five points behind leaders Manchester City after seven games of the new season under Conte.
