Liverpool confirms the positives of Van Dijk, Fabinho and Curtis Jones

Liverpool confirmed this Thursday the covid positives of Virgil Van Dijk, Curtis Jones and Fabinho and they will miss the match against Newcastle United.

The news comes after five games have been postponed for this weekend’s matchday, in which Sunday’s star duel, between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, is one of those that still stands.

The players are already in isolation and Liverpool has subjected the rest of the squad to additional tests, after learning the three positives. All the footballers have tested negative.

These three positives come in the worst week for the Premier League since the pandemic began. In total, nine games have been postponed, while last week 42 infected among footballers and club employees were registered, which is the highest number since football returned.
