Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen tests positive for Covid ahead of Man City clash

    The centre-back has been ruled out of the lunchtime trip to the Etihad – further depleting Thomas Tuchel’s defensive options.

    Christensen’s future is the subject of much speculation, with the Dane’s contract set to expire at the end of the season. Despite a strong European Championships last summer, the 25-year-old has slipped down the pecking order under Tuchel this term and has been linked with a free transfer to Borussia Dortmund.

    Saturday’s clash between first and second in the Premier League represents something of a last chance for Tuchel’s side to breathe life back into the title race, with Pep Guardiola’s defending champions currently ten points clear at the top.
