Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz missed the Champions League clash against Rennes, due to Covid-19.

Havertz had tested positive to coronavirus before the game against Rennes, and Lampard admitted that the 21-year-old is currently self-isolating.

Lampard admitted that it was only Kai who got the virus and the rest of his team are safe.

Lampard said before the game against Rennes: “Kai has tested positive for Covid in the testing going into this game so he has come away from the squad, he is in isolation as the doctor’s orders are and we move on.

“He isolates for that period and we are wishing him well.

“We are taking the precautions we take. Everybody has been tested, the whole squad since, and we have had negative tests, and hopefully it is a case of taking Kai out, everyone is negative and we move on in the short-term.”
