Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has confirmed that midfielder Kai Havertz has tested positive for COVID-19.
“It’s significant because he’s tested positive for Covid in the testing going into this game,” Lampard told BT Sport.
“So he’s come away from the squad, he’s in isolation as the doctor’s orders are and we move on. He isolates for that period and we’re wishing him well at home.
“Everybody has been tested as a whole squad since and we have negative tests, so it’s hopefully a case of we’re taking, everyone is negative and we move on in the short term.”
The 21-year-old Germany international joined Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen in September and has started in all of the club’s Premier League and Champions League fixtures so far this season.
