Callum Hudson-Odoi will not attend Chelsea training – club may already know infected players

Chelsea’s squad undertook coronavirus tests over the weekend, and the team likely already knows the results.

After a positive vote from the Premier League’s 20 clubs, players across the division will be able to go from individual training to working in groups of up to 5 tomorrow, the next step on the road of “Project Restart.”

Tomorrow is also when the Premier League will announce the results of the coronavirus tests taken by every player in the league. But teams will not want infected players coming to the training ground at all, let alone once group work starts, so one can only assume that they will have been informed of the results the moment they were available.

Callum Hudson-Odoi became the first Premier League player to have a confirmed infection, when he came up positive in March. Other players have had private tests at that point, but tomorrow is the first time we will have public, open knowledge of how many – if any – Premier League stars are affected.

Hudson-Odoi, despite already having had the virus, will not be attending training because of his well recorded contact with the police and a member of the public at the weekend.

“Dortmund are in decent form,” who said this, forgetting that the German side haven’t played in two months? Find out in the top sports newsletter here.
