A good Copa America for Argentina and Brazil could be advantageous for Chelsea next season.

Manchester City have sent more players to the Copa America than any other Premier League side.

Sergio Aguero, Martín Demichelis, and Pablo Zabaleta of Argentina and Fernandinho of Brazil are all in their respective national teams' squads for the tournament that kicks off on June 11.

With Brazil and Argentina being the favourites to win the competition that ends on July 4, that could mean that some of City's key players have just a month's rest before the Premier League starts again on August 8.

It's an issue that could also cause Manchester United problems, with three of their squad having also made the trip to Chile.

Where are Chelsea's Copa America players from?

Angel Di Maria and Marcos Rojo are both in the Argentina squad and Angelo Henriquez, who spent the season on loan at Dinamo Zagreb, is in the Chile squad.

Arsenal have two players at the tournament - Colombia's David Ospina and Chile's Alexis Sanchez.

Like Manchester United, the Blues also have three players who are at the Copa America, though they are more on the fringes of the squad than those of Chelsea's title rivals..

Filipe Luis and Willian are with the Brazil squad while Juan Cuadrado is in the Colombia squad.

Reading have two players heading to the Copa America.
