Thomas TuchelThomas Tuchel has included at least eight Chelsea Academy players in first-team training before his side face Brentford in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday. The Chelsea first-team squad has been hit by a Covid outbreak and the Champions League title has been unsuccessful in its attempt to postpone its Premier League game against the Wolves over the weekend. Tuchel announced that seven players on his squad were unavailable due to Covid, but the Premier League denied Chelsea's request to postpone their game on Sunday. Chelsea have been kept goalless by the Wolves and will now face Brentford in the Carabao Cup this week after the EFL confirmed on Monday that the competition would continue. In a statement by the EFL it is said that the Carabao Cup games "where it is safe to do so and the specified squad criteria can be met by the clubs" will be played. Chelsea's players who didn't play the Wolves on Monday trained on Monday and were supported by several academy stars including Harvey Vale, Josh Brooking, Alfie Gilchrist, Dion Rankine, Xavier Simons, Joe Haigh, Jay Wareham and Lewis Hall. Jorginho, who had missed the trip to see the wolves as a precaution, was able to start training again on Monday. After the Wolves draw, Tuchel made it clear that he was dissatisfied with the decision to let Chelsea play. “How should it stop when we're sitting on the bus, having dinner and just staying together as if nothing had happened?” You can find more stories like this on our sports page.
