Manchester United have been hit with positive Covid-19 cases among players and staff following Saturday’s Premier League match at Norwich.

United returned positive lateral flow tests ahead of training on Sunday, December 12 despite all players testing negative before the 1-0 victory at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Training was adjusted to individual and non-contact sessions outdoors for those who returned negative tests.

The Premier League has been notified of the outbreak, but Tuesday’s game away against Brentford might be canceled as a result.

 
Aston Villa also had one positive Covid-19 case in their playing squad, leading to a recovery session at the club’s Bodymoor Heath training ground on Sunday being cancelled.

Other clubs like Manchester city and Brentford have been hit by outbreaks of the disease.
