‘Key Players’ set to miss Manchester United game against Burnley

Manchester United will be without Fred and Alex Telles after they tested positive for COVID-19.

The Brazilian pair have tested positive for COVID-19, meaning they now have to isolate, in line with Government guidelines.

Telles missed Friday’s home game with Middlesbrough in the Emirates FA Cup, with it emerging he returned a positive test prior to the game.

His compatriot Fred, who came on as a substitute against the Teessiders, has now also tested positive and he could also be a doubt for Saturday’s game with Southampton at Old Trafford as a result.

“Yeah we have two players missing,” Ralf told club media as part of his exclusive pre-match interview.

“Alex Telles already missed the cup game because he tested COVID positive last week and, unfortunately, the same thing happened today with Fred. That’s why he will be missing from tomorrow’s game and possibly even the game against Southampton.”

Earlier on Monday, Rangnick confirmed that Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani and Raphael Varane would all be available to face the Clarets.
