- The players will have to undergo coronavirus tests for the second time this week.
- The tests won’t include those who have already tested positive and have been in isolation.
- Arsenal didn’t have a single positive result in their first round of testing.
The Premier League clubs will once again go through another round of Covid-19 tests on Friday as part of the protocols set by the league.
According to Sky Sports, this won’t include the players who have already tested positive. They have been advised to self-isolate for seven days before they can have another test.
The clubs should take about 48 hours to post results of the tests and the new ones are expected to be revealed during the weekend.
Arsenal already had their first round of testing, and not a single player tested positive before a return to first-team training. The Gunners officially reported back to London Colney on Wednesday.
Elsewhere in the Premier League, 6 people from 3 clubs tested positive in the first round of testing of more than 700 individuals. With a similar number being taken again, the league will hope nobody tests positive as it aims for a restart next month.
However, lots of players have outlined their concerns over returning to action under current conditions. Watford's Troy Deeney has become the first player who is refusing to get back on the pitch amid the coronavirus threat.
