PHOTOS: Chelsea camp relaxed at training today, is the joke on Cole?

Here is a selection of photographs taken from Chelsea's Cobham training ground ahead of a media conference scheduled there.

Frank Lampard and John Terry share a joke ahead of their training session today, Monday, as the club look forward to their Stamford Bridge clash against Paris Saint Germain in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Manager Jose Mourinho wants to keep a clean sheet and the Blues will need to push for at least two goals. Terry, therefore, will be crucial in keeping the defence stringent.

Maligned striker Demba Ba and fringe left back Ashley Cole may have caught wind of Terry and Lampard's joke, but perhaps the joke was on the English defender and his great big beard. The West Londoners are renowned for their banter.

It wasn't all smiles, though, as the squad got down to work, stretching (above) before going through their training drills under the watch of Mourinho.

New boy Mohamed Salah appears content with life at SW6.

Oscar, Eden Hazard and Willian are probably wondering where the sun went. A tabloid report over the weekend promised six weeks of heat but these three look dressed for winter. Perhaps the only thing hotting up is the Premier League title race…
