Frank Lampard has confirmed that two members of the club’s staff have tested positive for Covid-19 this week.
This comes ahead of Chelsea home game against Manchester City on Sunday evening.

Lampard said: “I am aware of the (Manchester City) situation. At the moment, the game is on. Man City have had problems at their training ground, we’ve had a couple ourselves but not the playing staff.”

Recall that Manchester City have already confirmed five members of the city team have already tested positive. 

It's been revealed that Gabriel Jesus and Kyle Walker are the two names which have goj public, while fans will have to wait till Sunday's game to determine the remaining three names. 

When asked about whether he was in favour of a two-week circuit break, Lampard said safety should come before football.

“We are in a protected environment,” Lampard added. “We are being tested twice a week. I don’t know why we went down to one. Two is important.


“It seems to be the situation is we go game-by-game. The games called off have been because of positive tests around that game. We’ll see how it goes.

“I understand it (playing on) but safety has to be paramount. The fact that I said we have a couple of staff [who tested] positive… they have babies, parents, friends, sisters, brothers and grandparents.

“They come here and go to work and then they go home. We are in another surge of Covid which appears to be more contagious, or it is. Safety and security is paramount, as opposed to keeping up the nation’s spirits up. That might not be a nice thing to say – we enjoy watching our football – but safety and health have to come first.

“We had it (a break) before in March. The Premier League and clubs have done everything they can to make the environment as safe as possible. As we’re finding, it is not always easy to do.

“When you go home and the numbers are going up, particularly in London where we are… it is down to the authorities, the government and the Premier League. I don’t know but if you’re told to stop, you stop.”
