Chelsea’s game with Wolves in doubt

Chelsea’s upcoming Premier League game against Wolverhampton Wanderers appears in doubt with two new Covid cases within the squad.

The Blues were understrength against the Toffees in midweek. They were missing Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Callum Hudson-Odoi due to a positive test.

Ben Chilwell, who is out injured, also tested positive for the virus. The club have now confirmed that there are two new cases within the first-team squad.

The Premier League have clearly stated that they plan to carry on with the game, but it won’t be a surprise if the fixture is postponed before kick-off.

There was a late postponement of Aston Villa‘s fixture against Burnley, and there could be another similar situation for the Wolves game tomorrow.

If not the case, the Blues have the chance to keep up with Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title. They are already four points behind.

They are missing both of their main strikers, but have received a boost with Kai Havertz available for selection after overcoming a brief illness.
