Coronavirus: Man Utd positive tests threaten Brentford game

December 11 – Manchester United are the latest English top-flight club to be hit by a new coronavirus outbreak with a “small number” of players and staff testing positive.

The Premier League has been notified of the outbreak but Tuesday’s game away against Brentford remains scheduled to go ahead.

United returned a number of positive lateral flow tests ahead of training on Sunday, having all tested negative before the 1-0 victory at Norwich.

Last week the UK government announced fans will need to show proof of double vaccination or a negative test to attend sporting events with crowds of more than 10,000 people in England.

The rules are due to come into effect from December 15.
