Why a positive test for a Spurs player this week could be bad news

The Premier League is set to resume later this month after the campaign was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Premier League has pulled out all stops to give the players a safe environment to train in as they work towards regaining their fitness in time for kick-off.

Players in the English top flight are being tested twice every week according to the protocols and this will be continued until the end of the season.

So far, only 12 players and club officials have tested positive from over 2,700 tests conducted in the first three rounds, according to Sky Sports.

Any player who tests positive reportedly has to be kept away from group training for a total of 14 days including the seven days of government-advised self-isolation.

It is explained that this week could be crucial for Tottenham as well as the other clubs in the Premier League.

With tests being conducted on Tuesday and Friday, any player who tests positive on Friday will miss the first weekend of fixtures.

A positive test for a Spurs player could see them miss out on the all-important Manchester United clash.

Test results from this week onward become extremely consequential as players and staff are not only likely to miss games but will have to train away from the rest of the squad.

It will be a disaster for us to get all excited about finally having a fully fit squad, with options galore in all areas of the park, only for key players to test positive and be ruled out anyway. Let us hope that none of our players and staff contract COVID-19 as we need to win almost every game to make the top four.
