Tottenham Hotspur will return to Premier League action in little over a week with the visit of Manchester United to North London.

Spurs played an eleven vs eleven training game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last Friday as part of the preparations of Jose Mourinho’s side against his former employer.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side were due to play a friendly against Stoke City at their training ground yesterday afternoon.

However, Sky Sports claim that the game had to be called off after Potters boss Michael O’Neill tested positive for COVID-19.

Stoke were reportedly at United’s Carrington training centre when the positive result came out, which led to the match being abandoned without a ball being kicked.

The Red Devils have confirmed that none of their players came in contact with O’Neill, and they reportedly still trained after Stoke left Carrington (Yahoo).

United will play a friendly against Championship leaders West Brom this tomorrow while Spurs will take on Norwich City (Daily Mail).

This was exactly the sort of scenario PL which many feared i.e asymptomatic carrier coming into contact with a Premier League squad and infecting multiple players. However, with the recent update from WHO on the extremely low risk presented by asymptomatic carriers, it does not seem like this is a major threat anymore.
