Chelsea’s game against Liverpool has been postponed, the club have just confirmed.
The Blues already had Saturday’s early kick off against Fulham put back as football up and down the country was called off following the death of the Queen.

There are virtually no free slots left to hold a game between now and the World Cup, and whenever we get this game played, both sides will likely exhausted.
