Brentford vs Man Utd in doubt as Red Devils shut down facilities

There is an ongoing discussions between Manchester United and Premier League over postponing their trip to Brentford on Tuesday evening.

The Old Trafford club has been forced to shut down their training complex due to positive COVID-19 cases.

United in a statement on Sunday, revealed that a “small number” of individuals among the first-team players and staff had returned positive lateral flow tests.

Those positive cases have now been confirmed by positive PCR tests.

This has led to United shutting down their Carrington training complex for 24 hours “to minimise risk of any further infection”.

In a statement on Monday afternoon, United added: “The club is in discussion with the Premier League whether it is safe for Tuesday’s fixture against Brentford to continue, both from a Covid infection and player preparation perspective.

“Team and staff travel to London will be deferred pending the result of that discussion.”
