The FA, Premier League and EFL have collectively agreed to postpone the professional games in England until 3 April at the earliest.

Chelsea have been one of the clubs massively effected by the coronavirus outbreak.

The Blues confirmed that Callum Hudson-Odoi had tested positive for the virus.

Chelsea shut down their Cobham training ground, while the players and coaching staff have been told to self-isolate.

UEFA, meanwhile, announced the Blues’ Champions League last 16-second leg tie at Bayern Munich has also been postponed.

Chelsea’s next Premier League match after the international break is set for April 5 at London Stadium against West Ham.

However, the Blues have several games that need to be rearranged, including games against Leicester City, Bayern Munich, Aston Villa and Manchester City.

It could also disrupt Chelsea’s pre-season plans. According to football.london, the club had planned to travel to the USA.
