N’Golo Kante & Thiago Silva test positive for Covid-19

Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Chelsea duo N’Golo Kante and Thiago Silva have tested positive for Covid-19.

The pair were notably dropped from Chelsea’s squad to play Tottenham in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Tottenham.

But Tuchel explained in a pre-match interview with Sky Sports that Kante and Silva have coronavirus and are now isolating.

Reports surfaced prior to the match on Wednesday that Chelsea were dealing with a number of new Covid-19 cases.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte also revealed in a press conference this week that they were checking on a number of possible positive results in their own camp.
