Lampard worried about postponement of Chelsea's match against Man City

Frank Lampard expects his team to face some problems in the upcoming matches due to the pandemic situation in England.

Chelsea

boss

Frank Lampard

says he expects the pandemic situation to affect his side's future schedule.

Lampard's comments came after the match between

Manchester City

and

Everton

was postponed due to some of Man City players being infected with coronavirus.

Chelsea

are set to meet Manchester City on Sunday, and Lampard says he expects this match and his team's next match in the EFL Cup to be rescheduled.

While Manchester City's training camp is currently closed due to fears of a further corona outbreak in the team, next Sunday's match against Chelsea is also in serious doubt.

But if this happens and the match on Sunday is postponed, Chelsea will face many difficulties and their schedule will be tighter than before.

"We’ll see what the position is,”

Lampard said

"It’s a key time and a rough time, and we felt that coming, with Tier 4 coming in and the surge in Covid. From our point of view I will find out more over the next day or two to make sure it has to be safe for the two teams. If not the game won’t go ahead.

"If we don’t play these games, we’ll keep working.

“I’m not surprised because the way Covid is in the UK is difficult for everybody and football isn’t very different. So we’ll just have to see what the Premier League come up with but safety will be paramount."
