No positive results in latest Premier League coronavirus tests

No positive results in latest Premier League coronavirus tests

The Premier League's Chief Executive Richard Masters said he welcomed the government's announcement but said there was still work to be done to "ensure the safety of everyone involved".

The English top flight is aiming to make its resumption as safe as possible, as players and club staff have been tested for Covid-19 consistently in recent weeks.

"We are pleased to agree the provisional restart date for the 2019/20 Emirates FA Cup. Of these, zero have tested positive", the league said in a statement.

The Reds sit 25 points clear at the top of the table and require just two more victories to be crowned champions for the first time in 30 years.

"As players, we were the last people to be consulted about Project Restart and that is because of where we fall in football's order of priority".

Having only four substitutes was deemed sufficient.

"There are obvious and genuine concerns about what happens to your match results if your club has a number of players testing positive for coronavirus, or is in self-isolation, and as a result you simply can not field your usual or strongest starting XI", Brady wrote in a column in Saturday's editions of The Sun newspaper.

"So I'm glad to confirm today that a third of matches to finish the season will now be free to view, including the Liverpool vs Everton derby and live Premier League football will be on the BBC for the first time in its history".

Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings says players were the "last to be consulted" over the Premier League's "financially driven" plan to restart in June.

To help you out, we have given you the amount of goals each player has scored this season. "And on this calculation three teams will be relegated".

Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, has voiced his concern that the return of the Premier League could facilitate a spread of coronavirus as he warned that fans will turn up at matches because of "human nature".
