EPL: Brentford vs Man Utd game postponed

Manchester United’s game at Brentford, today, Tuesday, has been postponed after the club were forced to shut down their training ground because of an outbreak of COVID-19.

United closed their Carrington training base yesterday, after confirmation of positive coronavirus cases following PCR testing.

However, the club’s academy, training in a separate bubble, was allowed to continue.

“The decision was taken following guidance from medical advisers due to the exceptional circumstances of an ongoing COVID-19 outbreak within Manchester United’s squad,” the league explained in a statement.

United’s match with Brentford in London will now be rescheduled at a later date.

On Monday, a separate Premier League statement reported a record high in COVID-19 positive cases across the league at 42 and said they are reverting to its emergency measures for all teams.

The statement read: “The safety of everybody is a priority and the Premier League is taking all precautionary steps in light of the recent rise in COVID-19 cases across the country. The League has reverted to its Emergency Measures, and will increase the frequency of both Lateral Flow and PCR COVID-19 testing of players and staff. The League can today confirm that between Monday 6 December and Sunday 12 December 3,805 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19. Of these, there were 42 new positive cases.”
