(Video): Watch how Reece James sends Timo Werner back to Germany with brilliant skill in Chelsea training
The Chelsea squad are in high spirits ahead of Monday night’s Premier League clash against Newcastle United.
Ahead of the big game at Stamford Bridge, the likes of Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Olivier Giroud were put through their paces at Chelsea ‘s training base in Cobham on Friday afternoon.
It was a normal session as one would expect, but there was a hilarious moment involving Reece James and Timo Werner.
As spotted in a ‘Chelsea Unseen’ training session video uploaded to the club’s YouTube page, the striker can be seen holding his head in his hands after being on the receiving end of a nutmeg.
At around the 5.14-minute mark, James nonchalantly rolls the ball between Werner’s legs which in turn prompts the whole squad to react in sheer joy.
Upon realising what had just happened, Werner, to his credit, accepts the humiliation by laughing it off while James shows his delight by jumping on the German’s back.
Werner is in line to return to the Chelsea squad after missing the FA Cup win at Barnsley, but Tuchel expects to be without Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz.
