Manchester United have outlined more positive coronavirus cases after the team returned to training.

Manchester Utd shut the first-team section of their training field on Monday following a rise in coronavirus cases that caused Tuesday’s Premier League match facing Brentford being adjourned.

United did practice on Wednesday, but without the players who had resulted positive tests.

They are ready to face Brighton at Old Trafford on Saturday at 12:30 GMT.

Nevertheless, it is unclear if that fixture will be played, with the club keeping the PL well informed of developments.

Burnley’s Premier League game at home against Watford on Wednesday was postponed due to preceding Covid-19 breakout within the visitors’ squad.

Burnley declared on social media at 17:00 GMT, with the match scheduled to kick off at 19:30.

It was the third Premier League game in the last week to have been cancelled because of Covid-19 breakouts following Tottenham’s tour to Brighton on Sunday and Brentford vs United on Tuesday.

In the newest round of coronavirus testing, 42 PL players and staff tested positive in what was the highest recorded number in a week period since testing commenced in May 2020.

After the initiation of new coronavirus rules in England to diminish the spread of the Omicron variant, the Premier League instructed clubs on 9th December to return to exigency measures, including social distancing and wearing masks.
