Not content to be playing a game every couple of days due to their Premier League commitments and Europa League campaign, Chelsea’s stars are trying their hand at pinball.

Blues players Juan Mata, David Luiz, Fernando Torres and Jon Mikel Obi have taken part in a game of giant pinball, using their football skills to rack up points on the massive machine.

Spanish star Mata and Brazilian Luiz could be seen using their flicks and tricks to set-up their team-mates, while Torres showed some of the finishing ability that has been lacking in his on-pitch displays to score the decisive shot as more and more balls get added to the game.

Chelsea will be hoping to see much of the same on Thursday night, when they take on Basle in the second leg of their Europa League final at Stamford Bridge.

With fourth spot still up for grabs in the Premier League and the Blues heading into a straight fight for two places with London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham, they will hope to add the Europa League final in Amsterdam to their calendar on May 15.

They already have an advantage over the Swiss side, who knocked out Spurs in the last round of the competition, with Victor Moses giving them the lead last week, before the last kick off the match saw David Luiz score a stunning free-kick to make it 2-1 and cancel out Fabian Schar’s penalty.
