Published

Ousmane Dembele has tested negative for Covid-19 and is now targeting a return to action to coincide with the possible return of the Champions League in August.

Ousmane

The Frenchman had been the only Barca player not to undergo a coronavirus test ahead of the first-team squad’s return to training, given the circumstances around his hamstring injury that had initially appeared to bring an end to his hopes of playing again in the 2019-20 season.

However Goal can confirm that, with Dembele now having taken a coronavirus test on Monday, the result has come back negative and that he is buoyed by the prospect of potentially being able to play again in the current campaign.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

on

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
