CHELSEA stars forgot the stresses of a rollercoaster few months with a trip to Universal Studios.

The Blues have been in Florida for their pre-season tour this summer, following American Todd Boehly's takeover.

Thomas Tuchel was far from impressed with his side's penalty shootout loss to MLS side Charlotte FC this week.

But he gave them a day off on Friday to make the most of the rollercoasters and other attractions on offer at the iconic Orlando theme park.

Jorginho took to Instagram to give his 3.2million followers a sneak peek at the trip.

The Italy midfielder posted a series of photos of the famous Universal globe, a dinosaur from Jurassic Park and the Hogwarts castle as well as videos from around the grounds.

He also shared snaps of himself with a bunch of his Chelsea team-mates including Conor Gallagher, Ethan Ampadu, Mateo Kovacic, Cesar Azpilicueta and Teddy Sharman-Lowe.

The Blues are in Orlando because they face Arsenal in their final match in the States at the Camping World Stadium this weekend.

Chelsea beat Club America 2-1 but then lost on penalties to Charlotte FC - with Conor Gallagher fluffing his lines with a failed Panenka effort in the shootout.

Then they return to Europe, heading to Italy for a game against Udinese next Friday.

Tuchel's side get their Premier League campaign underway on August 6 away at Frank Lampard's Everton.

By then, the German boss will hope to have Jules Kounde with the team after his £55m transfer was rocked by the Frenchman turning up unannounced for Sevilla's pre-season tour.

And should Azpilicueta can agree a free transfer to Barcelona, Tuchel must decide on the new club captain.

Trevor Sinclair believes Raheem Sterling should be handed the armband due to his credentials and experience.
