Chelsea star Victor Moses and his teammates used balloons and other creative instruments in preparation for their FA Cup final against Manchester United.

The Chelsea stars used Swiss balls, resistance bands and other unorthodox exercises as they stepped up preparations for the clash against Jose Mourinho’s side.

The preparation techniques used by Chelsea could be mistaken as fun exercises but most of the pieces of equipment used by the Chelsea players were used to condition and improve strength.

Ahead of the final at the Wembley Stadium Conte urged his players to up their game from their disastrous outing at St James' Park.

He said, "For the next game, for sure we must change. If we think we can play a game like this in the final of the FA Cup then we don't have a chance.

"We have six days to change our approach and desire and will to fight... Our fans deserve more than today."
