Chelsea beat Fulham 8-2 in a closed doors game at Cobham at the end of the first week of pre-season training.

Second goalkeeper Willy Caballero made his debut in the Blues goal, in the defence we found Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, and Gary Cahill, who captained the side. Last season’s wing backs Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses played alongside central midfield duo N`golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas. Up front Conte went with Willian and Pedro either side of Michy Batshuayi.

In the second half young players and loan returnees got their chances to impress manager Antonio Conte before the Asian tour, while new signing Tiemoué Bakayoko watched the friendly match from the bench.

The entertaining game finished with Chelsea running out 8-2 winners, with goals from Batshuayi (3), Willian (2), Remy(2), and Azpilicueta from the penalty spot. Fulham`s goals came via an Azpilicueta own goal and a penalty conceeded by Kenedy.
