- The Premier League is planning to resume in June.
- Chelsea still have to travel to Aston Villa on Matchday 30.
- Dean Smith says his side could be without two first-team players.
Aston Villa could lose two first-team players for the rest of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign due to the Covid-19 health concerns.
Speaking to Sky Sports about restarting the season, manager Dean Smith said: "There's a certain risk attached to the return to training of all players and I think they'll want to make sure it's safe to do so.
"We've got a player who's asthmatic, we've got a player whose mother in law is in remission and living with the family. So you have to be very careful, certainly with the transmission, because this [pandemic] knows no boundaries."
Chelsea will travel to Villa in the Premier League on Matchday 30 with the Villa Park clash originally supposed to take place on March 14.
Smith's side are currently fighting relegation and find themselves 2 points away from safety after picking up just 25 points from 38 games.
It's worth point out that Chelsea's legend and former captain John Terry is currently working as an assistant manager at Aston Villa.
