Antonio Conte took charge of Chelsea's preseason preparations with a double session at Cobham on Monday, sources have told ESPN FC.

Chelsea travel to Western Australia to take on Perth Glory in a friendly on July 23, before participating in the International Champions Cup with fixtures against Inter, Arsenal and Lyon either side of facing Premier League champions Manchester City in the Community Shield on August 5.

The Italian has been widely tipped to leave Stamford Bridge this summer following a disappointing campaign which saw Chelsea finish fifth in the Premier League, although they did end the season with FA Cup glory.

Alvaro Morata, Pedro, Cesc Fabregas, Marcos Alonso, Davide Zappacosta, Emerson Palmieri, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater and Ross Barkley returned on Saturday as they weren't playing in this summer's World Cup.

And the Spanish duo were both involved as Chelsea FC underwent their first pre-season training session on Sunday.
