Chelsea FC XI vs Wolves: scheduled roster, squad news, injuries and latest Covid for Premier League game
| Breaking News Updates | News Today
Helsea still doesn’t know who will be available for Sunday’s clash with Wolves after a Covid-19 outbreak and new injury issues.
Kai Havertz tested negative for Covid after fearing he became the last to be infected – but Tuchel is so short of options he could start N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic, although the two are returning just from injury.
Tuchel admitted that Chelsea are still not sure how many players will be declared fit for Sunday with further Covid tests to come.
“Yes, we are ready, but we are ready for the results tomorrow,” he said on Friday. “Today we have already done our tests so that no one can enter the training ground without a negative test.
“We might have been – not too careful – but we left Kai aside. [of Everton] because he wasn’t feeling well, so we thought it was a possibility that he was positive. We did a PCR test, which was not even required in my information, but it was negative.
“I didn’t have anyone on the bench anymore, so we took this risk taking into account that health comes first. Kai is still negative so he was in training but you can never be sure, tomorrow everything may be different and you have to go from there.
“The practice is at 2pm tomorrow and then we all sit on the bus and go to Wolverhampton. I’m not telling you any secret, once you have players for Covid you have them for 10 days and in December it is a minimum of three games. This creates obstacles and problems to overcome.
Chelsea predicted XI: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Jacques, Chalobah, Kanté, Saul; Mont, Havertz, Pulisic.
