Antonio Rudiger Nearly Miss Chelsea's Meeting With Tottenham

A odd chain of events has been exposed online, almost leading to Antonio Rudiger being forced to miss Chelsea's match against Tottenham yesterday evening.

Following the conclusion of the action in North London, a number of Chelsea players were singled out for commendation in the post-match analysis meetings.

Marcos Alonso and Thiago Silva, for example, both shone brightly, with the latter being named Man of the Match.

The in-form Rudiger, on the other hand, was widely regarded as the star performer in the derby match.

The German didn't put a foot wrong all night, keeping Tottenham's deadly frontline at bay and even scoring a well-deserved late goal.

However, as previously said, Thomas Tuchel may not have had his star goalkeeper available for the match against Tottenham had it not been for a late turn of circumstances.

Rudiger had trouble obtaining his Covid-19 pass – necessary for all players entering Premier League stadiums – on his phone before of kick-off, as revealed by Sky Sports' Martin Tyler and later recounted by

In turn, the German's entry into the ground was questioned at one point: 'I should also note that he [Rudiger] almost didn't get into the game today because the biometrics that you have to pass to get through to the Covid check on his phone didn't work.'

‘Thankfully, they were able to get the technology to operate and he is now here.'.
