Mason Mount and Thiago Silva have reported back for pre-season training with Chelsea this week, as have Euro 2020 winners Jorginho and Emerson.

The four players have got straight to work at the club’s Cobham training ground and joined in with the rest of the players who featured in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Arsenal.

There will be no Harry Kane for Tottenham, with the England captain not yet back in pre-season training amid interest in him from Manchester City.

Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are back in training at Spurs having returned earlier than expected after their exploits at the Copa America and the Euros.

With no Harry Kane and all the uncertainty around his future, a win would give Spurs a much-needed lift ahead of the new season. But Chelsea will want to put on a show in front of their fans on the day they are parading the Champions League trophy around Stamford Bridge.
