Looking at the subs bench I would hazard a guess that Peacock-Farrell, Dunne and Long are isolating and that is why Tarks and maybe Mee played. And it is possible Brownhill and Westy are also isolating, otherwise they might have been expected to be subs at least. Likely a pretty weakened team agains...

Re: SD press conference at 4pm

If the premier league have moved to lateral flow resting where the result is available in about 30 minutes then it is hardly surprising cases are rising amongst footballerswho once showing a negative test intermingle with colleagues. At best this test will miss 30% even up to 50% of positive cases
