Chelsea squad self-isolate as Hudson-Odoi tests positive for coronavirus

The spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Premier League personnel increased in the early hours of Friday morning, with Chelsea the latest club to be hit.

The Blues announced via a statement on their website that Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.3m) had tested positive for the virus and that their training facility would undergo a partial closure.

Crucially, in line with government health guidelines, Chelsea personnel who had recent close contact with Hudson-Odoi, which includes the full first-team squad, will now also enter into a period of self-isolation.

“Chelsea men’s team player Callum Hudson-Odoi had a positive test result for Coronavirus returned this evening. Chelsea personnel who had recent close contact with the player in the men’s team building will now self-isolate in line with Government health guidelines. These will include initially the full men’s team squad, coaching staff and a number of backroom staff.” – Chelsea statement

Hudson-Odoi becomes the first Premier League player to be announced as having contracted COVID-19 but the virus had already hit Arsenal late on Thursday.

The Gunners announced that manager Mikel Arteta had tested positive for COVID-19 and that their full senior squad would also self-isolate.

Shortly after, Brighton confirmed that their Gameweek 30 meeting with Arsenal was postponed.

No announcement has been made about Chelsea’s scheduled fixture with Aston Villa, although this is expected to be postponed as well.

The football community now awaits the results of an emergency Premier League meeting on Friday morning.

The league had officially stated on Thursday evening that all matches would go ahead as planned this weekend, although this was less than an hour before the Arteta news broke.

In response to that, the Premier League’s hand was clearly forced and an emergency meeting scheduled.

What to do if you think you might have coronavirus*

If you think you might have coronavirus or you’ve been in close contact with someone who has it:

  • stay at home and avoid close contact with other people
  • do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next

The 111 coronavirus service will tell you if you need to continue to stay at home (self-isolate) or if you need medical help.

          Wouldn’t surprise me if they decide to do the ‘British’ thing and carry on regardless for now.

          But, in all honesty, they ought to suspend it.

            Seems to be that in UK and Finland governments are both late... Here we took at least the measures yesterday. But since today is Friday 13th, Boris wants be more dramatic?

      (Big) If this GW proceeds, FPL should give everyone an additional activated wildcard, given the very late cancellation of fixtures before the deadline.

      1. HamezMace

        The word big, should be bigger.

      Has to be all cancelled.
      Ireland is closed here at the moment.
      Eveything frm senior to schoolboy level soccer etc etc postponed until April.

        But here there are £5 billion in tv rights contracts

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Pretty sure the £5 billion tv rights contracts don't include a clause which forces matches to go ahead despite a global pandemic and multiple teams with players who have the virus.

    6. TheDragon

      Let’s face it - The season is over.

      Liverpool’s wait for a premier league title goes on another year.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years

      2. Whats the Huth

        2 months, 19 days ago

        If its cancelled now. No champions, no relegations, clean slate next season.
        Unless its postponed, Liverpool wont be champions.

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          It’ll be initially postponed and then in a few months cancelled in my opinion

                  Depends.

                  If he's unfortunate to have corona virus himself then he may not be feeling well at all.

          I’ll settle for that!

      3. Al Moon Yeah
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Not a pop but that would be very very unfair not to award Pool the title. They are so far ahead points-wise and have worked so hard to get where they are only to be trolled by a virus. Not staying the games should go ahead but starting all over is robbing them of the title.

        1. Al Moon Yeah
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          *kop

          1. Whats the Huth

            Not really though. It’s not over till it’s over.

            1. Al Moon Yeah
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Yeah, but still better to hold and assess and see if the games are playable in a few months time rather than cancel the whole thing.

              1. Whats the Huth
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                Of course. But if the league is cancelled today. You can’t give Liverpool the title. The season would be void

        2. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Agreed it would be exceptionally harsh on them but ultimately correct as they haven’t won it , they are just extremely likely to win it.

          Probably why the premier league are desperate to play 2 more weeks to get them the points they need

          1. Whats the Huth
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            And if they lose vs Everton (which I can see happening)

          2. jason_ni

            2 months, 19 days ago

            Say you play those games, and they manage to win, how do you decide relegation? That is just as important to those clubs, as winning the league is to pool.
            Also euro qualification, what happens there? More to it than getting games in for pool to win the league.

        3. jason_ni
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          You say it would be unfair not to give pool trophy if its cancelled(which it is) but if it is cancelled, and you do this is it fair on norwich, villa and bmouth to relegate them while they still have a chance? Nope it's not.
          That's why it cant be postponed, whole thing should be writoff

          1. Al Moon Yeah
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            To be honest, we don't know how long this pandemic will go on and what further implications it may have so I really can't say what course of action would be best, but if it were up to me, it would be to suspend all leagues until the situation is at least manageable if not contained and then the play the games indoors when no one's health is put at risk, but that's just me. Obviously safety first, so if they feel canceling the entire thing makes sense, that okay. Just it still would be unfair to Liverpool and bottom 3.

            1. jason_ni
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              I agree.. it should be postponed, until safe to resume and reach the conclusion.
              But if that cant be done, then only correct to say no winners/relegations - as no one has actually won it or been relegated.

      As I said yesterday, it is probable that at least one person in every first team squad in the PL will test positive for coronavirus. The reason we don't know is because we aren't doing enough testing. It is stupid for the season to continue now and should be paused.

        Also, people pretending this is an old person's disease and it is not that bad are deluded. We have athletes in peak physical fitness getting ill. There is no immunity because it is new.

          80% of cases are mild and the majority recover no dramas. Only those who have weak immune systems (elderly) are actually in danger of life threatening complications

            What don't people understand? It is not about millions of people dying (although plausible that thousands could die). It is about the impact on the nation's health, nation's resources and nation's economy / finances. It is about doing stuff now to reduce the impact on the three aforementioned areas in future.

              You can't reduce the number of people who will get sick, you can just delay it. So any sort of lockdown places a greater strain on nation's resources and finances.

              Not on expert on the 3rd (health) but a lot of experts agree with government's approach on this including their decision not to cancel sporting events at this point in time.

                If you can delay it then the burden for the healthcare won't be as huge. If everyone is sick at once the healthcare can't handle all of them resulting in higher mortality

                  Surely the problem is that even at relatively low levels of infection (Lombardy), the health service still gets overwhelmed. None of this stops until we get a vaccine in 12 to 18 months or we get herd immunity through about a 60% infection rate, which is a huge amount of people whether it happens quickly or slowly.

                    Surely.
                    Maybe if Italy has taken more countermeasures and Italians actually obeyed the rules the level of infection would be much lower.
                    I think it can be stopped like in China but drastic measures are needed (like putting whole Wuhan into quarantine, stopping all public transport, people not leaving homes). I doubt it can be done in Europe though...

              This is not the issue. The effect on the nation from shutting everything down is far more drastic than if the virus was allowed to just roam free and infect everyone.

              It's all about protecting the sick and elderly.

            Have you red what those "mild" symptoms are?
            I was surprised when I saw that by "mild" the mean pneumonia.. LOL.. I mean, it's not life threatning, but image so many pneumonia patients at once.. The disease spread has to be slowed down.. And yes, it can be fatal for elderly people, but also, people with asthma and pulmonary issues..

              Pneumonia is life threatening , even for normal healthy types, young or old.
              I've had it and never want it again ever.

              I'm not too certain that is what they are referring to as mild symptoms though. There was a guy on news last night who has had it and said he has had worse colds
              .
              What he really meant was hed had worse coronavirus before. Most of us have had some strain of coronavirus before , many times, and put it down to a bad cold or flu.
              Coronaviruses have been around since dawn of man.

              The difference here, is that this is a brand new strain. Nobody has built up any sort of immunity and so it spreads like wildfire and is more lethal.

              From what I understand, this virus can be fought off, but it is persistent and if gets into lungs and develops pneumonia you're in big trouble, particularly the old and infirm.

          No one has immunity but essentially a bad flu. Calum Hudson Odoi says he’s already recovered and now he’s ‘tested positive’ and shuts down a squad. Lol. Sooner we all get it the better so we don’t crash the economy, lose our jobs etc etc.

      9. FOO FIGHTER
          2 months, 19 days ago

          How has your season gone with autosubs?

          One thing is for sure, start of next season I will go 4 x 4m for bench to have more cash for my starting 11 even if none of my subs play. Autosub has been pretty useless for me as I always fully concentrate on my starting 11 plus I NEVER start with FLAGGED players in my starting 11. Once I have built a decent TV then only will I start getting in playable subs which probably will only be needed for my BB 🙂

          In order of GW, player out, player in, autosub points and GW points.

          1 - Trossard - Greenwood - 1 - 83
          9 - Salah - Dunk - 1 - 38
          13 - Salah - Mount - 1 - 68
          15 - Salah - Traore - 3 - 62
          16 - Mane - Traore - 2 - 72
          20 - Vardy - Cantwell - 1 - 64
          21 - Vardy - Lundsstram - 1 - 71
          28 - Vardy - Cantwell - 3 - 35

          So I got a total of 13 points from autosubs this whole season and my bench only came into play in 8 GW's.

          My scores were also not that bad over the period of the 8 GW's.

          So my strategy for next season is fck my bench and max my starting 11 with the £'s I gain from non playing subs.

          Fck autosub 😀

            I've gotten 22, which isnt great, but I generally start with fodder on my bench, and money in my 11. This year it was 4.0, greenwood, dendo and diop.

          I wonder if they’ll reset this week’s transfers if/when the season is paused later on.

            Custom programming. Doubtful.

            • 5 Years

            Doubtful. I would think the FPL page will be locked if the PL is suspended, and it’ll reopen once the league resumes.

              2 months, 19 days ago

              I’m not crying as I haven’t made any transfers. Was just curious as to whether I might get a boost against people who’ve taken a -hit already

            • 4 Years

            Why? That's the risk you accept when making early transfers. Play stupid games win stupid prizes

            No way, too much work and it wouldn't be fair to others who waited. They have rules. Read them. They will change the deadline if matches are postponed.

            1. jason_ni
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              I'd say it's just as unfair to those that made the transfers.
              You can plan an early transfer, based on the upcoming games.
              If those games are all cancelled, then it defeats the purpose really.

            2. DF
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              They will not change the deadline.
              The games will be rescheduled and fall in different gameweeks. We score 0 for gw30. Or -4 in my case. Cancel your benchboost too, because if you've played it for 0, you've played it.

          5. Old Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            No chance. Either the FPL table will stay as it is if the Premier League is cancelled (highly unlikley), or it will continue to evolve as the matches are played. As JTreble says - mid season custom programming is a no-no.

            I used my 2 transfers last night after hearing it goes ahead but if they prove wasted it is my tough luck, that's the game. Stop crying about it.

            This would be fair for people who have already brought in Chelsea players etc. Though you all should have known better to delay making any considering!

          Firstly, wishing well anyone affected by this virus.

          Secondly, I have no doubt that EPL will be postponed today, which is the correct decision.

          Finally, putting my FPL hat on and aware that nobody has the answer; what do you reckon will happen with the gameweek deadline? Is it worth using one of two transfers to avoid burning one?

          1. Whats the Huth
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            I don’t think you’ll be burning anything. The deadline will simply be extended.

            Save for now

          2. DandyDon
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Why not! Probably wait to last minute if it comes to that though.

        • BobbyV
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          There should be unlimited transfers for everyone until the next actual deadline...whenever that may be

                It's going to be suspended which is the right thing to do

                Summer instead of euros plus delay to next season if needs be is the likeliest scenario

                UEFA to confirm they're moving euros to next year on Tuesday according to journalists

              Fpl perspective this is a game changer, and I'll just be writing this season off.
              Building a team for 31(on 8 atm) and now the likely hood is that gw 31 will have full roster(if not some dbls) when(if) the season ever gets going again.

                can imagine there will be plenty more players announced as catching the virus in the coming days!

                I find it silly that many are jumping to the 'null and void' route just for their own teams agenda / stop a rival from achieving something

                  I’d love to have it null and void if i was struggling to break into the top 500K aswell

                  As a utd fan, as much as I dont want pool to win the league, am more concerned about our cl qualifications. No any cancellation will snooker that possibility.

                    I think plenty of utd fans I know would gladly sacrifice cl qualification just to bask in the tears of pool fans

                      Not saying that wouldn't appeal to me, but I'd rather we get cl, and extra chance of signing better players who will come based on that.
                      Europa league is crap.

                Liverpool surely declared as champions if the season is called off ?

                  Depends entirely on your perspective..... Particularly if you're a utd fan

                  Doesn’t work like that. You simply cannot extrapolate an incomplete season

                I'm currently in the top 2k with WC, BB and FH left. Well set for easily my best ever finish.

                It's a very frustrating year for the season to be cancelled. I know it's a terrible situation but if it could have waited a year I'd have very much appreciated it.

                  Don't worry, your rank will stay 2k until games start again

                      a likely suspended season means he has a further few weeks/months to ponder on his awful rank and gives extra time to come up with a plan on how to salvage an awful season 😉

                        Top 10k was always inevitable ?

                To be fair, the more matches we get out the way before suspension, the fewer need to b organised upon returning...
