Wolves, Manchester United, Liverpool and their league rivals have provided the Premier League a full list of players in isolation amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as part of a seven-point plan send by the FA to all club doctors in the top flight, reportSportsmail.
The plan, which advises the medical staff at each club how best to deal with sick players, also warns stars on their behaviour during the pandemic and has informed them that, should they go abroad, football will begin without them if they cannot get back into the country.
Training ground contact of any kind should be at a minimum, says the new guidelines, with home workout plans – plans that many clubs have already adopted this term – strongly encourages to help slow the spread with next-to no human contact.
In his message to club doctors, medical advisor Mark Gillet warned that English professional football would ‘not consider the postponement of a match as a result of one or more players either being unable to re-enter the UK due to travel restrictions or self-isolating as a result of international travel contrary to this advice’.
The Premier League still remain hopeful that play will resume on April 30, the current pencilled-in date, but the board are set to meet again soon to discuss if that date should be pushed back further with La Liga having suspended their division until further notice.
Liverpool, who lead the way by a massive 25 points, will not be stripped of their imminent league title, though.
The FA last week confirmed that any 2019-20 fixtures would be played before the next season can be begin, with Euro 2020 postponed to allow the free up the summer for club games to be played
