Chelsea returned to action for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic forced the Premier League to be put on hold, beating Reading 1-0 in a friendly played on Wednesday afternoon at Cobham.

Pedro scored the only goal of the match in the first-half to give Frank Lampard’s men a 1-0 victory against the Championship side.

N’Golo Kante, who returned to contact training on Tuesday, was among those who played, as were, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Billy Gilmour, and Christian Pulisic.
