The final squad is yet to be released, but the Chelsea manager has taken 26-men out to Belfast – with the likes of Mason Mount and Reece James seen boarding the plane.
Edouard Mendy, Ben Chilwell, Trevoh Chalobah, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Marcus Bettinelli were also seen making their way over to Northern Ireland on Tuesday morning.
While Romelu Lukaku was not pictured with the squad, despite fans calling for him to be shown on social media.
Despite his absence, Lukaku is said to be close to completing a stunning return to Chelsea as he was spotted arriving at an airport prior to a flight to London to finalise his move.
The Inter Milan striker has completed the first part of his medical ahead of his £98million return to Chelsea and dropped a big hint that a deal is close to being over the line.
The Belgian forward was recorded leaving Milan’s Columbus clinic on Monday afternoon and appeared to be holding a Chelsea shirt in the back of the car as he was whisked away.
The prospect of Lukaku’s return has got the Chelsea excited – with many begging for the club to ‘announce’ his arrival ‘already’.
