Team arrives in Malaysia

The Chelsea team touched down in Malaysia to a hero's welcome this morning ahead of their pre-season tour of Asia. The Blues will take on Malaysia XI on Thursday, and Thailand All Stars on Saturday before concluding their tour on July 27 against Hong Kong side Kitchee. Chelsea are already two games into their pre-season campaign following successive wins against Portsmouth and Wycombe Wanderers. And new manager Andre Villas-Boas, who has taken a 26-man squad with him to Asia, has urged his players to prove they're worth a place in his line-up when the new campaign kicks off on August 13. Villas-Boas will put his squad through their paces on Monday evening at the Shah Alam Stadium in Kuala Lumpur, before their first game against a Malaysia XI side, who were soundly beaten by Arsenal last week.
