Nathan Ake looked to be in good spirits as he posed for a picture with Ruud Gullit after Chelsea training at Cobham on Thursday afternoon.

The defender is getting used to life back at Chelsea after he was recalled from his loan spell at Bournemouth last month.

Ake will be hoping to play a part for Antonio Conte’s men in the coming weeks and months as the Blues look to win the Premier League title this season.

And the Dutch defender looked pleased to have met Chelsea legend Gullit in the build-up to Saturday’s crunch clash with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

Ake posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Nice interview with Dutch Legend @ruudgullitofficial_ coming Saturday at @ziggosport.”

Chelsea head into Saturday’s game with a healthy nine-point lead at the top of the Premier League table and as the heavy favourites to win the title this season.
