Premier League Associations remain committed to proceed Chelsea game against Wolves on Sunday amidst Covid-19 cases
According to The Sun, the premier league fully intend for the Blues to play their match against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday expect there are additional Covid-19 concerns in the Chelsea dressing room.
the premier are set to hold a virtual zoom meeting on Monday with all 20 club owners. Despite the rising Covid-19 cases, the league are set to inform the clubs that they intend to go through with games in the festive period.
Premier League chief executive Richard Masters and other head leagues bosses believe that the symptoms measures taken, which include a daily lateral flow of tests to enter into the training ground could be enough to contain the virus and stop the spreading.
Meanwhile, two teams that did go ahead with their fixtures in the mid-week were Chelsea and Liverpool, despite suffering high numbers of Covid-19 concerns to key personnel. in fact both these teams are set to play their fixtures on the weekend as well.
That is unless a dressing room wave causes more problems, The West London Outfit are heading to the Molineux to face the Bruno Lage’s side on Sunday. Having dropped two pints against Everton, this is a must-win game for the Blues in order to join the title contender.
The blues faced Everton on Thursday night without the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwel, Timo Werner, Romelu Lukaku and Mateo Kovacic. N’Golo Kante and Trevoh Chalobah were on the bench, with only Chalobah replacing the Chelsea captain in the 79th miunties.
Saul Niguez and Ross Barkley came off the bench, neither the midfielders helped changed the system of the game, thus, a repeat of this on Sunday would mean that the blues would be handicapped in yet another game. we are missing major first-team players.
At a time when we are experiencing a dip in form it does not help that we are going ahead with games withouts our key players. it is an infuriating decision by the league, especially since every result counts in the title race.
Taking a minor break in the festive period could contain more spreading, and give a much needed rest to the clubs in the hectic fixture schedule. A 14-6 majority vote by the 20 clubs could temporarily close down the league, such decision might not take place on Sunday.
Thus, the Blues would be traveling to the Midlands on the weekend as they look to get all 3 points against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
