Chelsea are supporting their fans over objections against staging games on Christmas Eve.
On Friday afternoon, Chelsea posted a statement on the club's official website expressing sympathy for the objections, which have been taken up with the Premier League.
"The Chelsea Supporters Trust wrote to the club this week expressing its objections to fixtures being scheduled to be played on Christmas Eve, an idea they are opposed to 'due to the inherent travel difficulties and disruption to what is regarded as sacrosanct family time'," the Chelsea statement read.
"The club is sympathetic to our supporters' objections and it is a subject we have raised with the Premier League."
The statement was later taken down from Chelsea's official website.
