Chelsea have said a request to postpone Sunday’s Premier League match at Wolves because of a Covid-19 outbreak at the club was rejected.

The Blues expressed disappointment that league bosses insisted the match go ahead on a weekend of football heavily affected by Covid postponements.

Chelsea were already without Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Callum Hudson-Odoi because of positive Covid tests.

It is understood more Chelsea players have since tested positive.

It is anticipated a makeshift squad will be named by Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel for the match which kicks off at 14:00 GMT.
