TOUGHFIXMan City’s coronavirus outbreak has sparked fixture chaos – with next week’s huge trips to Chelsea and neighbours Manchester United in doubt.
Monday night’s clash at Everton was called off four hours before kick-off as more positive tests for City followed those of Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker and two staff members.
Pep Guardiola’s men are due to visit Chelsea in the Premier League next Sunday and United in the Carabao Cup semi-finals three days later.
But City’s training ground is closing for an “indeterminate period” as clubs chiefs cite “a risk the virus could spread” and the “security of the bubble compromised”
Football bosses now face a headache amid concerns over the rising second wave of Covid-19 as City’s next two games seem certain to need rearranging.
FormerChelsea striker Chris Sutton believes the Blues are in a ‘crisis’ following the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.
Frank Lampard’s men have won just one of their last five Premier League games.
- Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Sutton said: “Whether we like it or not, this is a totally different season for Frank Lampard.”The pressure is on, he has spent the big money. You look at the changes that Frank made tonight and then you look at the changes Dean Smith made.”What that tells us is that Frank has such a strong squad, with the players that came into the side, a really strong squad. But at this moment in time, they are a crisis club because they are under-performing.
“With the nature of this season and how tight it is, a couple of dodgy results and Chelsea are the latest team that needed to bounce back.
“They didn’t do so and now the pressure will build. I think things are a little bit flat at this moment in time but I can’t put my finger on it.”
TO BE FRANK
This is what Frank Lampard has to say on whether he saw a response today from his team:
“Yeah I did definitely in [the] performance.
“[We] started really well, Villa had some moments but [we] dealt with them in the second half and came through the first half pretty strongly, get our goal that we deserve.
“Second half conceded with our man on the floor, that’s kind of the run we’re on at the minute and then we pushed and we couldn’t break the deadlock in the end to get the win but attitude wise, effort wise, some of the play was really good against a good team.”
“I definitely got a reaction with the performance.”
