“No wonder he gets held off the ball”

Chelsea players are currently off enjoying a weeks breaks before returning next week to start preparing for their next Premier League match against Manchester United on Monday the 17th of February.

The newly introduced winter break involves all Premier League teams having a week off from having a fixture, but not all at once, so there is still fixtures just not a full calendar.

For The Blues, this break has come at a perfect time as some of the players look to recharge the batteries before pursuing back into the race for top four, and they will be looking for some better momentum and results during the second half of the season.

Chelsea’s vice-captain is already in the sunshine enjoying his holiday, as he posted an image in his smalls on his Instagram story, and he certainly looks like he could use some healthy vitamin D!

Chelsea fans have been reacting to his post…

No wonder he gets held off the ball like a 6 year old kid.

How can a pro footballer who spends all day training and will have a personal nutritionist and probably his own chef have a physique like that πŸ₯Ί
