The UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday evening said that Britons could no longer leave the house unless it is for essential work, shopping, one form of exercise-per-day or medical need, for at least the next three weeks.
More so, the Premier League has been suspended until April 30 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Meanwhile, Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has revealed that the lockdown will benefit the likes of Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and N’Golo Kante and Callum Hudson-Odoi who have all been out injured before the league was suspended.
Pat Nevin wrote in his column for the official club website: “We in the UK are only entering the first days of the lockdown and nobody is sure how long this planetary pandemic will paralyse the Premier League, but when it finishes it is certain that most of the players who have been injured will be fully fit by then and ready to start up again. Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Christian Pulisic, Tammy Abraham and N’Golo Kante will each have had a very long period to let their various problems clear up.
“There are very few benefits for anyone during the current crisis and you wouldn’t crassly celebrate them anyway, but not only will these players be ready, willing and able when football starts again, they will also not have the huge disadvantage of having to catch up with match fitness to everyone else’s level.”
