Reports came in the late hours of Wednesday night that about four Chelsea players were suspected to have tested positive to coronavirus.

According to the Daily Mail, there has been an outbreak of coronavirus among the Chelsea squad after players travelled abroad.

There have been 12 new Covid-19 cases at 14 different clubs since last week, with players jetting across the world during their short-lived breaks between campaigns.

The Sun also claim Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori and Christian Pulisic are all in quarantine after returning from Mykonos in Greece.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard welcomed his squad back for pre-season this week ahead of the new season, with Chelsea’s first Premier League fixture on 14 September.

The Blues squad underwent coronavirus testing at the end of last week upon their return to training, and at least four Chelsea players have been forced to quarantine in line with government guidelines.

However, it is unclear if any of the players have tested positive for Covid-19, with some reports claiming that four Blues players have tested positive to the virus.

Strong reports claim that four players have mild symptoms or are asymptomatic and will return to training once they have spent seven days in isolation.

The good news is that every player will be available by the time we play our first game against Brighton on September 14th.
