Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen tests positive for coronavirus

Defender Andreas Christensen becomes the latest Chelsea player to test positive for coronavirus, ruling him out on Saturday's game at Manchester City.

Chelsea have been handed another coronavirus-related blow after Andreas Christensen returned a positive test.

Christensen has been in and out of the squad of late, a consequence of a back problem, but the Dane impressed as Chelsea defeated Tottenham Hotspur in the EFL Cup semi-finals earlier this week.

That performance realistically ensured that the 25-year-old would feature on the right-hand side of a back three for Chelsea's fixture at Premier League leaders Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.

However, head coach Thomas Tuchel revealed at his pre-match press conference that Christensen was out of contention due to a positive coronavirus test.

As well as the game at the Etihad Stadium, Christensen is also expected to sit out the meeting against Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday evening.

The development comes at a time when Christensen, who is out of contract in the summer, is being linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund. body check tags ::
