Liverpool records three new COVID-19 cases ahead of Chelsea clash

Liverpool have recorded three new positive COVID-19 cases but manager Jurgen Klopp believes Sunday's game at Chelsea is not yet close to being called off.

The Reds boss declined to name the trio as they were still awaiting PCR test confirmations but those affected, plus Thiago Alcantara and Takumi Minamino, will be missing at Stamford Bridge.

"Taki is running outside, Thiago not. On top of that we have three new coronavirus cases in the team and a few more in the staff so it's not so cool in the moment," said Klopp.

"I'm not able to say who it is but it'll be pretty clear on the team-sheet the day after tomorrow.

"We are not close to getting the game postponed yet. We haven't had a proper outbreak yet but it's happening more and more often.

"It's like a lottery in the morning when you wait for the result. It was day-by-day pretty much another case and today another one."
