Gary Neville disagrees with two-week Premier League ‘circuit-breaker’ to curb Covid cases

Sheffield United recorded a number of positive Covid tests

Sheffield United also announced ‘ a number of positive tests’ on Tuesday ahead of their match with Burnley, which was able to go ahead despite manager Chris Wilder confirming that a “couple” of players and “half a dozen” staff had been infected by the virus.
