Manchester United’s game at Brentford, today, Tuesday, has been postponed after the club were forced to shut down their training ground because of an outbreak of COVID-19.

United closed their Carrington training base yesterday, after confirmation of positive coronavirus cases following PCR testing.

However, the club’s academy, training in a separate bubble, was allowed to continue.

“The decision was taken following guidance from medical advisers due to the exceptional circumstances of an ongoing COVID-19 outbreak within Manchester United’s squad,” the league explained in a statement.

United’s match with Brentford in London will now be rescheduled at a later date.

On Monday, a separate Premier League statement reported a record high in COVID-19 positive cases across the league at 42 and said they are reverting to its emergency measures for all teams.

The statement read: “The safety of everybody is a priority and the Premier League is taking all precautionary steps in light of the recent rise in COVID-19 cases across the country. The League has reverted to its Emergency Measures, and will increase the frequency of both Lateral Flow and PCR COVID-19 testing of players and staff. The League can today confirm that between Monday 6 December and Sunday 12 December 3,805 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19. Of these, there were 42 new positive cases.
