Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admitted he was disappointed with the Premier League’s decision to reject Chelsea’s request to postpone Sunday’s Premier League game against Wolves.

Chelsea were forced to name just six substitutes against Wolves, with two of those being goalkeepers Kepa Arrizabalaga and Marcus Bettinelli.

It was a depleted Chelsea squad against Wolves on Sunday, and Tuchel was disappointed that the Premier League allowed the game to go on.

Up next for Chelsea is Wednesday’s EFL Cup clash against Brentford, and Tuchel is hopeful the game won’t go on, but also admitted that his side will be left with no option if they decide that Chelsea must play the game.

On the fixture going ahead despite Chelsea’s Covid-19 concerns, Tuchel said after the draw with Wolves: “I gave my opinion, the club gave its opinion, we talk a lot about safety and protecting the players, not so sure we did this today. On we go.

“If we have tomorrow and the next test and the next positive I would like to speak to the Premier League about what they expect. If they make us play against Brentford shall we not arrive or not train? What should we do?

“Everyone is allowed to have an opinion. We had an opinion and the Premier League had an opinion. We agree to disagree.”
