Chelsea left-back Marc Cucurella jokingly sent a message to Chelsea youngster Lewis Hall after training, urging the 18 year old to hit the gym to get stronger.

Hall started back to back games for Chelsea before the World Cup break and the Chelsea academy graduate is currently with the team at Abu Dhabi as the Blues prepare for the resumption of the Premier League.

Cucurella posted a message on his Instagram story on Wednesday to banter with Hall.

“Sorry amigo… you need more gym,” Cucurella wrote.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Graham Potter praised Hall for his performance in Chelsea’s 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Manchester City before the World Cup break.

Reacting to Hall’s performance, Potter told Sky Sports: “Lewis Hall did brilliantly. Fantastic performance. Great quality great effort. You can see he can take the ball, He took responsibility.

“Putting the ball in the net is the hardest thing and that’s all he didn’t do today but everything he did do was fantastic.”
