CHELSEA have had a request to postpone this afternoon’s clash with Wolves DENIED by the Premier League, according to reports.
The Blues have had a number of issues with Covid-19, and may have to name unfit players on their bench to make up the numbers.
But despite this hardship, the Telegraph report that this afternoon’s match is set to go ahead – after the Prem rejected the Blues’ plea to call the game off.
Arsenal’s 4-1 victory over Leeds is currently the only top-flight game that has taken place this weekend.
Five Prem clashes were called off yesterday, including Manchester United vs Brighton.
The last to be postponed was Aston Villa’s home match with Burnley, with the match axed just two hours before kick-off – leaving fans fuming.
