Revealed: Manchester United facing a crisis of Covid cases ahead of Brighton clash

According to The Telegraph (Subscription Required), the information relating to Manchester United being affected by a huge number of Covid cases has been revealed ahead of the clash against Brighton and Hove Albion in Premier League. The match is still in doubt to go ahead as a decision is yet to be made.

Man United had seen their match against Brentford get postponed due to a virus outbreak which saw their first team facilities get shut down. Brighton have their own breakout to deal with, giving the Premier League more to think about.

Nineteen cases have got recorded among the Red Devils players and the staff, which would bring in concerns on whether the game on Saturday would take place or not. The club is constantly in contact with the Premier League over the severity of the setback to decide on the upcoming fixture.

Manchester United hit with 19 positive cases.

Earlier, Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City had their requests for a postponement rejected by the PL. They are taking it on a case-by-case basis which would also affect the Red Devils as the match gets closer. It remains to be seen what decision would they take with this many cases.

Big blow

It would be a damning blow to the Manchester club as their team would get dented by the absence of the missing players. The affected individuals would no doubt be in isolation as the new strain of Omicron is starting to wreak havoc across the world. We must remain cautious in this scenario and try to do the best we can to prevent more cases.

One can question the league on whether the current circumstance would worsen the situation moving forward. Training sessions means there would be contact between individuals and the same can be said for the staff working inside the club. Test kits do not have a 100 per cent accuracy, which creates the risk of the virus getting spread.

While it would be disappointing to see another game getting postponed, we would understand if such a decision had to be made. The safety and well-being of the people should always take the upper hand, and in such a dire situation, we should have the responsibility not to put others at risk.

Since the league takes each fixture on a case by case basis, we will get more updates by tomorrow on whether the match will go on or not. Until then, we must follow the guidelines to play our part to face this precarious scenario.
