The 'very good' atmosphere within the Chelsea dressing room will ensure the defending champions are well prepared for the new Premier League season, new signing Willy Caballero has claimed.
Having sold or loaned out 26 squad members already this summer, Antonio Conte's side have only 17 senior players on their books heading into the 2017/18 season - which begins with the visit of Burnley on August 12.
Caballero is one of only four players to have moved to Stamford Bridge in this transfer window as Chelsea prepare for the added burden of Champions League football.

But the former Manchester City keeper believes they are close to hitting peak condition in time for the new season – thanks in part to a strong unity among the squad.
‘The staff are working really hard to reach this level and most of the new players arrive here to keep this level or improve it,’ he told the club's website.
‘It is going to be hard when the season starts but the most important thing is the atmosphere there is in the changing room. With this group, we have very good achievement in this.’
