PHOTOS: Chelsea stars training ahead of Maribor clash

Stamford Bridge

Chelsea's players were put through their paces ahead of their next European encounter.

Chelsea trained on Monday morning in preparation for their Champions League game against Maribor on Tuesday.

The Blues welcome the Slovenian side to Stamford Bridge having seen them draw both their group games to date against Sporting Lisbon and FC Schalke.

Chelsea did the same against the German side but they defeated the Portuguese club courtesy of a late goal from Nemanja Matic to put them in control heading into the double-headers.

His club may be undefeated so far, but Blues boss Jose Mourinho was quick to warn against complacency against Maribor, and he is likely to have done the same when he took to the training field ahead of the game.

Chelsea are without Ramires, Jon Obi Mikel, Andre Schurrle and Diego Costa, but they still have plenty of quality to call on in a match they will know they should win given home advantage.

Below is a selection of images from Chelsea’s latest training session:
