Klopp on covid testing: 'It feels like a lottery every morning'
Three Liverpool players and staff members tested positive for covid-19 ahead of the trip to Chelsea but it is too soon to ask the Premier League to postpone the game, claims manager Juergen Klopp.
Three Liverpool players and more staff members have tested positive for covid-19 ahead of the trip to Chelsea but it is too soon to ask the Premier League to postpone the game, manager Juergen Klopp said on Friday.
The league has postponed 18 games so far due to a mixture of covid-19 outbreaks and injuries at several clubs, leaving them without enough players to fulfil fixtures.
"We have three new covid cases in the team and a few more in the staff, so it's not so cool at the moment," Klopp told reporters ahead of Sunday's game in London.
"I'm not (able to reveal who tested positive) because we have to go through the whole process, PCR (tests), but you will see the day after tomorrow on the team sheet, it will be clear who is affected."
