Chelsea close academy for a week after 20 positive Covid-19 test results

 The coronavirus outbreak has been causing fixture cancellations across the UK and is impacting the Blues' youth teams

Chelsea have closed their academy building and instructed players and coaches to stay at home for a week after an outbreak of 20 cases hit the club.

Frank Lampard's first-team squad and Emma Hayes' women's side will be unaffected due to separate bubbles being implemented at Cobham.

However, the Premier League is now in discussions about rearranging the development squad match with West Ham and the Under-18s match with Brighton that were due to be played this weekend.
