Eight Chelsea players in quarantine as club suffers coronavirus outbreak


An outbreak of coronavirus at Chelsea football club has seen eight players go into quarantine. 

England stars Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham plus Fikayo Tomori and Christian Pulisic are in isolation under Government guidelines.

Jorginho, Ross Barkley, Emerson and Michy Batshuayi have also been placed in quarantine and are missing pre-season.

Mount and Pulisic, both 21, and 22-year-olds Abraham and Tomori went on holiday to the Greek island of Mykonos before pre-season training began last weekend.


Abraham, Pulisic and Tomori even posed for pictures together as they relaxed in the sunshine.

None of them reported for duty at the Blues’ Surrey training ground yet in order to minimise the risk of any potential infection.

Chelsea would not comment on whether the players involved have tested positive or negative for coronavirus but it is known there are a number of cases at the club.

The club are now adhering to official protocols and guidelines to maintain the bio-secure bubble around the first-team squad.

The new season starts for Chelsea in less than three weeks’ time so it is a big blow for Frank Lampard.
