England player, Chilwell has implied that things are notably tough due to the coronavirus pandemic limiting people’s progress and communications in their daily lives.

Besides the fact that footballers are in a healthy position, they too are living under Covid-19 restrictions and


announces he is doing different things to keep his mind stimulated.

"Obviously it's a very tough time at the moment,"



"I'm in a very fortunate position where I am able to come into work and see my friends and do what I enjoy, but there are a lot of people not in that position and are stuck at home with nothing to do.

"There are a few things I've found to keep myself busy [after training] ... activities that are really going to challenge your brain and keep you interested through very tough times.

"Me and Reece James play online chess against each other quite a lot. He wins a few, I win a few. We played a game on the way back from Russia in the Champions League. I think it was one game, but it took four hours - the whole flight!

"I actually asked my mum for some chess books and a chess board for Christmas! That has obviously helped me."


have a trip to Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League on February 23 - which should give them the chance to perform.

The focus of both of 'em is the trip to Premier League title contenders, Leicester on Tuesday.
