Across two rounds, the Premier League conducted 3,118 tests between 2 August and 8 August.

The Premier League says nine players and club staff have tested positive for coronavirus over the past week, before the start of the 2021-22 season.

From these, there were nine new positive tests, just four days before Brentford and Arsenal kick off the season. The Premier League will maintain their twice-a-week testing programme.

This season, though, they will be using lateral flow tests in their weekly testing, and only those with a positive outcome will then take a PCR test to confirm the result. Some clubs have already had pre-season disruption due to Covid-19.

Arsenal cancelled their pre-season trip to the US after a “small number” of positive cases and Aston Villa, Manchester United, and Chelsea were forced to cancel pre-season friendlies.
