CHELSEA will not play another Premier League game until at least April after chiefs suspended action due to coronavirus.
And Callum Hudson-Odoi is one of the players who has tested positive for the virus as the Blues deal with the spreading infection.
Meanwhile, the transfer rumour mill is still in full operation with Jude Bellingham's proposed move away from Birmingham City rumbles on, as he weighs up options from the Blues, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
Get all the latest news and gossip from Stamford Bridge here…
Roman Abramovich's net worth has fallen by a whopping £2.4billion already this year, writes Joe Miles.
The global outbreak of coronavirus has left the Chelsea owner out of pocket – but luckily he still sits on a fortune of around £10.95billion.
According to the Moscow Times, Russia’s top billionaires have lost a combined total of £50.6billion in 2020.
President Vladimir Putin is said to have lost £2.8billion, while Abrahimovich has parted ways with just over £2.4billion.
The 53-year-old, who has owned Chelsea since 2003, has suffered the effects that coronavirus has had on the financial market.

Bad news football fan…
Sky Sports and BT Sport have no plans to reduce their subscription fees despite viewers having no live action to watch.
The two broadcasting giants have already revealed they won’t be offering refunds for their dedicated fans.
And now they’ve revealed there will be no discounts on their current subscriptions, despite coronavirus wiping out almost all sport across the globe.
Reports claim Sky and BT will meet on Monday to discuss how best to fill the void left by the lack of live sport.
As well as the usual football action – including the Premier League and Champions League – a whole world of other sport has been cancelled.
Former Sunderland striker Kevin Phillips has claimed that Chelsea winger Willian would be a good addition to the Spurs squad.
Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “Willian is a player that I like. I think he’s got great qualities, great attributes.
“At the end of the day, it’s whether or not he fits into Mourinho’s style and where he plays. Mourinho generally plays a 4-2-3-1, so you could certainly see Willian playing on the left or right and giving them a bit of quality.
“If they get him on a free and it isn’t too much money then go for it.
“He’s been in and out the side at Chelsea, whereas if he goes to a side where he’ll play week in and week out, you will certainly see the best of Willian.
“For me, he’s still got plenty to offer in the Premier League, and if Tottenham were to secure his services, I think that would be a good signing.”
Looking ahead to the summer, Chelsea are set to go after a left-back to improve their squad.
After a season with a transfer ban, Frank Lampard will finally have a chance to build a squad in the summer.
Hakim Ziyech is already on his way to Stamford Bridge and the Blues are set to turn their attention to a left-back next, according to Football London.
They report: “On the radar. Alex Telles is another player who will be looked at over the summer as a potential left-back option.
“Emerson has been rarely used, while Marcos Alonso has certainly got himself back into the first team thinking.”
