Covid-hit Chelsea frustrated by Wolves draw

 

Chelsea were left frustrated by a 0-0 draw at Wolves that saw them slip further behind in the Premier League title race.

Daniel Podence’s first-half finish that was ruled out following a VAR check was as close as the game to a goal with incidents at a minimum in the Molineux fog.

Chelsea pushed and probed for the goal but created very little against a resilient Wolves side and the draw means they are now six points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

The build-up to the game had been overshadowed by Chelsea’s failed attempt to get the match postponed because of seven positive Covid-19 cases in the squad.

“It is very hard for us to understand,” Thomas Tuchel told Sky Sports before the match. “We are very concerned about the health of the players.”
