Antonio Rudiger insists Chelsea cannot hide behind Covid issues as Man City widen gap in title race

“In our situation, a point feels like a loss,” said the Germany international. “It doesn’t matter the circumstances – it doesn’t feel good.

“Of course it is not easy. Definitely not. But we still had a competitive team out there to do something and we should have provided more chances to score, which we failed to do.

“The second half we had a good uplift, we showed character, but still at the end of the day we cannot be happy with this point because looking at the table.”

The Premier League rejected Chelsea’s application to have the game postponed after Kai Havertz and Ruben Loftus-Cheek joined Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chilwell as confirmed cases of coronavirus.

Jorginho returned positive and negative tests so was left out of the squad for the trip to Molineux.

It is not clear if Chelsea’s games against Brentford in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday or Aston Villa on Boxing Day will go ahead, with both of those teams having recent matches postponed due to their own Covid outbreaks.
