The rest of the squad trained and practice was adjusted to individual and non-contact sessions. Manchester United is scheduled to play Brentford in the Premier League 2021-22 on Tuesday. The virus outbreak also casts doubt on Manchester United’s game against Brentford.

Tottenham Hotspur had a coronavirus outbreak last week, forcing the postponement of two of its games — including a match at Brighton in the Premier League 2021-22. British newspaper The Sun was the first to report the positive tests at Manchester United.

United played Norwich away on Saturday, winning 1-0, and the whole traveling group tested negative in routine tests. Last week, four West Brom defenders tested positive before their match against Reading.

In another case, the Championship fixture between Sheffield United’s and Queens Park Rangers on Monday at Bramall Lane had been postponed after several QPR members returned positive for coronavirus cases, leaving them with ‘insufficient numbers’.
