MANCHESTER United are discussing with the Premier League whether it is would be safe for Tuesday's game at Brentford not to be postponed, just days before their scheduled match against Albion.

The Red Devils are due to play Albion on Saturday and that game could also be at risk of a similar fate if the game tomorrow is postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak at the Old Trafford club.

Positive results reported on Monday have now been confirmed by PCR tests.

This has led to operations at the club's Carrington training ground have been shut down for 24 hours.

Albion have already had their game against Tottenham Hotspur postponed due to Covid-19 cases in the Spurs camp.

Graham Potter has also confirmed that "three to four" Albion players have tested positive.

The Red Devils are concerned about infection risk and disruption to preparations for matches.

It is believed that the team will not travel until a decision has been made with the league.

United said they were in discussions with the Premier League "given the cancellation of training and disruption to the squad and with the health of players and staff the priority".

All of Manchester United players tested negative before Saturday's 1-0 win at Norwich, but some tested positive before training on Sunday morning.

If their match against Brentford is postponed then the game against Albion could also come under question.
