The Premier League has confirmed eight positive coronavirus tests among players and staff in its latest round of testing.
A statement from the league said: “The Premier League can today confirm that between Monday 16 November and Sunday 22 November, 1,530 players and Club staff were tested for COVID-19. Of these, there were eight new positive tests.
“Players or club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate for a period of 10 days.
“The Premier League is providing this aggregated information for the purposes of competition integrity and transparency.
