Also, last week, three positive cases were recorded as testing in the Premier League returned after the break between seasons.

Manchester City duo Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez were found to have tested positive and would self-isolate in accordance with government guidelines.

Paul Pogba as well, at the end of August, missed France’s UEFA Nations League games against Sweden and Croatia after being left out of the squad for testing positive to COVID-19.

The 2020-21 campaign kicked off on the 12th of September 2020 after the coronavirus pandemic led to no Premier League football being played for three months from mid-March in the 2019-20 campaign.

All of the games played since June have been held without fans in attendance.
