- The two positive tests came from two different clubs
- Latest coronavirus tests carried out on 996 players and staff
Watford’s Tom Cleverley has attempted to dispel the air of negativity around the club by insisting he would relish the opportunity of deciding survival or relegation on the pitch. The Premier League confirmed on a further two positive cases on Saturday, each from different clubs, from 996 players and staff screened in the latest coronavirus testing.
The pair of positive tests will now self-isolate for seven days. That represented a drop in positive tests from the first round of testing, announced on Tuesday and where six people from 748 were shown to have the virus.
A Premier League statement read: “The Premier League can today confirm that on Tuesday 19 May, Thursday 21 May and Friday 22 May, 996 players and club staff were tested for Covid-19. Of these, two have tested positive from two clubs. Players or club staff who have tested positive will now self-isolate for a period of seven days.
