The Blues were hit by 7 positives cases for Coronavirus ahead of their shared points game against Wolves with Thomas Tuchel hinting that Chelsea may take extreme action for the Carabao Cup with Brentford
Thomas Tuchel has said that the Carabao Cup quarter final clash with Brentford on Wednesday might now hold as concerns around the spread of Coronavirus continue growing up.
Chelsea had requested that there fixture against Wolvehampton on Sunday be postponed due to seven positives cases of the virus in their squad, a request that was declined by the Premier League bosses.
The German manager was left anxious that the match went ahead, with Chelsea slipping back in the Premier League title race, after getting a goalless draw at the Molineux stadium.
According to Government guidelines, anyone who test positive for COVID-19 should isolate for ten days, which will as well rule the 7 positive cases out of the Brentford game.
While he could call upon Chelsea’s fundamental reserve team options for the Carabao Cup trip to the Brentford Community Stadium, Tuchel has revealed that he might make a drastic move and questioned what league officials expect of his Covid hit squad
“It will hopefully stop but it’s more or less hoping, There is nothing else to do” said the Chelsea boss after the draw match against Wolves.
“If we have the next test and the next positive I will love to speak to the people in the Premier League what they expect, shall we stop and not arrive in the next game if we are met to play? When they make us play against Brentford shall we not arrive? Shall we not train anymore? What shall we do”?.
Tuchel also insist that he remain focus concerning the health of his players rather than who they play next.
