Ten people have tested positive for coronavirus in the latest round of testing conducted by the Premier League – the highest number of positive tests since the season began.
A total of 1,595 players and club staff were tested for covid-19 between 21 and 27 September.
Those who have tested positive – who have not been identified – will now isolate for 10 days.
