LONDON: Frank Lampard has revealed some Chelsea staff have tested positive for COVID-19, but he believes the clash with Manchester City tomorrow will continue.
The two teams will clash at Stamford Bridge tomorrow but their preparations are disrupted due to the surge in new cases of the virus.
City’s match against Everton has been postponed, with five players and at least two of their staff infected with COVID-19.
“I have not been informed about the possibility of the match being postponed, I am just ready for the situation and for now the match will continue.

“We know Manchester City have some positive cases and we are the same, but not involving the players. That is our situation now,” Lampard said.
Lampard also feels he and his players are in a more alert state than outside situations as they are tested twice a week.
“I have to say that the Premier League and the clubs have done their best to make this league safe, but it is not easy when they go home, and the numbers are growing – especially in London,” he said.
Chelsea will go down without Reece James having a hamstring problem, but Judge Ziyech is expected to be fit to start the match.
