Chelsea in nervous wait on new shirt sponsor amid concerns over Infinite Athlete deal

Chelsea are waiting for the Premier League to approve their £40million-a-year front-of-shirt sponsorship deal with sports data company Infinite Athlete.

Infinite Athlete was created just a week before discussions about becoming Chelsea’s sponsor began and its estimated turnover is £12m this year, so it is being asked for funding proof.

Romeo Lavia will have to wait ‘a few weeks’ to make Chelsea debut

Romeo Lavia will have to wait “a few weeks” before making his Chelsea debut, Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed.

The Belgian joined the Blues last week in a deal worth up to £58m despite interest from Liverpool.

Lavia became the second big-money midfield signing the club had made in the space of only a few days, following Moises Caicedo through the door at Stamford Bridge.

Midfield had been a key area the club looked to strengthen after a swathe of high-profile exits this summer and there is hope Lavia, Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez will be starting options for years to come.

Still, the 19-year-old will not be involved as Chelsea host Luton on Friday in what already feels like a must-win clash for Pochettino after last week’s loss away at West Ham.

Caicedo, however, looks primed to start alongside Fernandez for the first time.

“Moises is ready to start, Lavia is not,” said Pochettino on Thursday.

“After [the fitness coaches] assessed him, he needs a few weeks to be ready to be involved with the team. He is reconditioning now and working to try to catch the team and his teammates.

“For Romeo, we need to wait a few weeks until he is involved with the team.”

Nizaar Kinsella at Stamford Bridge

Reece James spoke about his injury in the pre-match programme notes, stating: “It is obviously a difficult time for me after suffering an injury in training last week, one game into a season we are all so excited for. It was pretty bad timing for me. I had done the full six weeks of pre-season and I was training with the team from the beginning up to the start of the season, so then to get injured in training after the first game was obviously disappointing for everyone. I’ll probably be out for a few weeks but it could have been worse.”

Mike Dean admits ignoring VAR call to protect referee in Chelsea vs Tottenham draw

Former Premier League referee Mike Dean has made a remarkable admission regarding a VAR call in last season’s fiery London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

Dean was the Video Assistant Referee for the 2-2 draw, which saw Spurs defender Cristian Romero escape a likely red card, when he pulled Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella to the ground by his hair.

On-field referee Anthony Taylor missed the incident, and Spurs seconds later scored a last-gasp equaliser through Harry Kane, and Dean has admitted he did not alert his colleague to the incident because he wanted to spare him “more grief”.
