The English top flight restarted its season earlier this month after a 100-day hiatus due to the pandemic while the FA Cup quarter-final ties, which featured eight Premier League teams, were played over the weekend.

“The Premier League can today confirm that between Monday 22 June and Sunday 28 June, 2,250 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19. Of these, one person has tested positive,” the league said in a statement.

Since players returned to contact training last month, tests have been carried out since May 17 and the league has conducted 11 rounds of testing so far.
