Timm Klose and Christoph Zimmermann were both part of the Canaries' training session on Thursday morning as Norwich City prepare for Chelsea's Premier League visit.

Klose and Zimmermann were involved in the initial part of the warm up that was open to the media at Colney, as Daniel Farke's squad look to build on last weekend's 3-1 win over Newcastle United.

Swiss international Klose has missed the opening two top flight league games with a hip flexor issue that came to light following the penultimate friendly against Atalanta.

Farke will confirm whether the centre back is in his plans for the Blues' clash when he holds his pre-match press call on Friday afternoon.

Zimmermann is targeting a return to the first team mix before the upcoming international break after summer surgery on a knee injury.
