Norwich City waiting on Covid test results

It’s ahead of their game with Manchester United on Saturday evening

Norwich head coach Dean Smith admits the club are waiting anxiously on Covid-19 test results ahead of the Premier League clash against Manchester United at Carrow Road.

Tottenham beat the Canaries 3-0 last weekend and have since been hit by a coronavirus outbreak which resulted in Thursday night’s Europa Conference League clash with Rennes being called off and their Premier League trip to Brighton on Sunday being postponed.

Smith feels none of the current concerns within the Norwich squad are linked to the Spurs game, but nevertheless faces a nerous wait to get confirmation if any of his players will be ruled out of the United match because of a positive PCR result.

“We have got a couple of knocks and have got a couple of Covid-related issues that we are waiting on results for this morning,” Smith said.

“I can’t really let you in on any names, but there’s a couple of players whom we are worried about, so we have tested and we will wait for the PCR results back on them.

“(They are) just feeling a little bit unwell, not likely to be linked to the game last week with Tottenham. It is just in general, I think (like) with the whole nation, (we are) holding our breaths at the moment.”
