Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted that 'safety has to come first' for players and staff in the lead up to resuming the Premier League season.

Despite being pleased to have players returning to the training ground in Phase One of Project Restart, Lampard accepted that it was not going to be a quick fix for clubs to emerge from the hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Exclusively revealed last week that N'Golo Kante opted out of training on Wednesday over safety fears and while there is an appetite to see games return and the season concluded, Lampard said safety beats everything else.

A mass round of testing of players and staff across the league saw six positive tests emerge from a total of 748, with three coming at Watford.

'What remains is we want to play football and what remains of this season, but as you say the most important thing is when it is safe and healthy for players and staff.

For Lampard, the issue of Kante's decision not to train and what happens moving forward with other players will be key.

A number of BAME players across the league have been reluctant to return to training.
