It’s a bad year but only kindness makes it better

Chelsea FCW’s last match of 2020 was supposed to be a London derby versus Tottenham Hotspur on the 13th of December, but that was postponed after positive COVID-19 results at the club. Given the positive tests, plus London entering Tier 4 lockdown due to the rise of cases throughout the capital, the holidays will be very different for most, including the players.

As such, many Chelsea players are having to spend the holiday alone as they quarantine due to possible exposure to the virus. In a thoughtful move, Chelsea provided players with a full stock of food so that they may at least have pleasant holiday meals.

Well done, Chelsea! These sorts of courtesies and kindnesses, especially from the distances in which we have to remain separated, are needed even more this year, and mean so much.

BONUS: Also, as a holiday gift for you, here’s captain Magdalena Eriksson and her partner, Chelsea forward Pernille Harder, in matching Christmas pajamas.
