The international break is nearly over and it seems like Chelsea may have survived an international break without any major hiccups.

We thought we would do a quick Chelsea roundup of how the players on international duty got on. Chelsea players old and new crisscrossed the world. Some looking to keep a World Cup dream alive and others engaged in meaningless friendlies.

Chelsea Roundup

The first piece of good news was that Danny Drinkwater rejected a call up by Gareth Southgate as he recovers from an injury.

One player that did go and had a successful time was rising star Andreas Christensen who was in the Denmark team that qualified for the World Cup.

A surprise international call-up was Ethan Ampadu who has only just reached the periphery of the Chelsea squad. At just 17 it appears that Wales are doing there best to tie down their new generation by blooding dual nationality players early.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham made their international debuts as well, it seems odd that it is easier to play for England than Chelsea these days.

Ola Aina played for Nigeria, whilst eternal loanees Matt Miazga and Marco Van Ginkel were also in action.

Next Action For Chelsea

Next up for Chelsea is a trip to West Bromwich Albion on the horizon as Antonio Conte tries to build on the momentum of three consecutive Premier League wins.

The international break as always has been full of rumours and exaggerated media claims so I am sure that Chelsea fans and Antonio Conte will be happy to get back to Premier League action.

West Bromwich Albion is one that makes Chelsea fans nervous though as it is a ground linked to the demise of managers. Roberto Di Matteo and Andre Villas-Boas met their end after a trip to the Hawthorns.
