Chelsea news and transfers LIVE: Midfield ace targeted, Tuchel sack claim, circuit break latest

Hello and welcome to our live Chelsea blog!

Following a goalless draw at Wolves, the Blues will be third in the Premier League table at Christmas, six points behind leaders Manchester City.

It was a disappointing result following a spirited performance but all the headlines surrounding the game were centred around the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, and the decision made for the game to go ahead in the first place.

It was revealed before kick-off that Chelsea had asked the Premier League to postpone the game after eight players in the Blues’ camp tested positive for coronavirus, but the league’s organisers denied the request, much to the ire of the club and Thomas Tuchel.

An emergency meeting between all 20 top-flight clubs has now been scheduled for 1pm today which could lead to a round of festive fixtures getting cancelled in order to try and prevent the spread of the virus and postponement of any more games.

We will have all the latest on that plus all the usual transfer rumours and gossip with the January transfer window just under a fortnight away.

So sit back and let bring you all the latest news and rumours from Stamford Bridge.
