Thomas Tuchel blasts Premier League for forcing them to play against Wolves

Thomas Tuchel is worried about the recent COVID outbreak in the camp.

The Blues were held in a goalless draw against Wolves which saw them slip three points behind the league-leaders Manchester City.

Six players have already been tested positive for the virus and Jorginho could be another player added to the list.

Tuchel said: “I understand the decision. They say, ‘Look, they have 14 players,’ but if you look a bit more in detail you see Trevoh Chalobah with two training sessions, Mateo Kovacic, one training session, you see N’Golo Kante has one training session.

“We put a huge health and safety risk physically and not only from Covid. This was the decision and of course, that’s it. I’m not sure if I catch it and hopefully I will not catch it. Will I do sports the very next day if I have to isolate for 10 days?

“We put Kova into a Premier League match the second day after a Covid infection. So if you count this as 14 valuable players to play in the Premier League – the toughest league in the world – on the level that it needs, okay it is like this.

“We can survive a game, but we will pay the price. At some point we will pay the price for sure.”
