Wasps, who have now cancelled training and sent their players home for the week, reached the Prem final when they thrashed Bristol Bears on Saturday.

And the Bears themselves were left sweating ahead of their Challenge Cup final against Toulon on Friday.

SunSport understands that Bristol posted zero positive tests this week. 

Wasps released a statement on Twitter and then buried on their website, 

It read: “Wasps can confirm that seven members of the playing department, three staff members and four players, have returned positive tests for COVID-19.

“The Club’s medical team were informed of the test results following the latest round of the PCR COVID-19 screening programme.

“All seven, who are in good health overall, are now self-isolating and so are their close contacts. 

“They will continue to follow Public Health England and Premiership Rugby guidelines and protocols. 

“The Club have taken the decision to cancel training for the remainder of this week as an added precautionary measure. 

“Everyone at Wasps send their best wishes to the players and staff concerned.

“The Club’s COVID-19 contact tracing, measures and protocols, which remain rigorous, will continue to be adhered to.”

Willian admits he is ‘learning a lot’ from Mikel Arteta at Arsenal

willian admits he is learning a lot from mikel arteta at arsenal

Willian insists he is learning a lot under Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta as he praised the Spaniard and his new way of playing he is adapting to.

The winger joined the Gunners on a free transfer in the summer after rejecting a new contract at Chelsea and has found adapting to life under his new coach challenging.

The Brazilian has not been able to make an impact since his two assists in the opening game against Fulham and is still waiting for his first goal in an Arsenal shirt.

Willian said he is beginning to get to grips with the demands of his manager but said it has been a steep learning curve. 

‘It’s been a cool, new experience. I hadn’t worked with a coach with that mindset,’ Willian told Globo Esporte.

‘The positional game doesn’t mean that you have no freedom on the pitch, you have the freedom to move, but many times you have to respect the position, what the coach asks, the instructions, understanding that it’ll be better for the team.

‘It may happen that you don’t touch the ball and get frustrated, but Mikel always says that, wait a minute, the ball will arrive. I’ve been learning a lot.’ 

Willian missed Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat by Leicester last weekend with a calf issue but is back in contention for tonight’s Europa League clash with Dundalk after resuming training this week. 

Arsenal got off to a winning start in Group B with a 2-1 victory over Rapid Vienna last week and will look to follow that up against their Irish opponents at the Emirates this evening.

Manchester United golkeeper Romero left in limbo after failing to secure move to Inter Miami

manchester united golkeeper romero left in limbo after failing to secure move to inter miami

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has been left in limbo after a move to Major League Soccer fell through.

Talks with David Beckham’s new club Inter Miami came to nothing with the MLS transfer window due to close in the early hours of Friday morning.

The Argentine goalkeeper is now set to stay at United until January – or even the end of his contract in June – unless the two sides can agree terms to rip up his £100,000-a-week deal before then.

However, it’s understood that Romero is in no mood to do United any favours after being upset at his treatment by the club.

The 33-year-old’s hopes of joining Everton were dashed when United demanded a fee, and he was then left out of both the Premier League and Champions League squads this season following Dean Henderson’s return to Old Trafford as No.2 to David de Gea.

Romero, who helped United reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup and Europa League last season only to be replaced by De Gea in both competitions, has now effectively dropped to fourth choice behind Lee Grant and there is no possibility of him playing for the club again.

His wife Eliana Guercio criticised United on social media and some of his teammates are also said to be unhappy at how the club have handled the situation.

The former Sampdoria and AZ Alkmaar keeper returned from Argentina earlier this month and is training at Carrington following a quarantine period.

Foden set for England recall after impressive displays for City but Greenwood may have to wait

foden set for england recall after impressive displays for city but greenwood may have to wait

Phil Foden is set to be considered for an England call-up next week following his non-inclusion for disciplinary issues earlier this month.

Manchester City star Foden, along with Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood, were not considered for the games against Wales, Belgium and Denmark after being sent home in shame for bringing back two females to the team hotel following the win in Iceland just days after their first senior international call-ups in September.

But having axed the pair from his previous 30-man party; Southgate is ready to re-consider the young duo for the forthcoming matches against Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Iceland.

Foden has been in excellent form for City since the start of the season and is known to have impressed England scouts, who have kept a close eye on his progress in recent weeks.

Indeed, it is understood Foden has a strong chance of being handed a recall following his disciplinary issues.

It remains to be seen, however, whether Greenwood will be handed an immediate return to the senior squad when Southgate names his squad on Thursday.

Greenwood, who has faced disciplinary issues at Old Trafford in recent weeks, scored in Wednesday’s Champions League demolition of Red Bull Leipzig, but is yet to notch in the Premier League this season.

And while Southgate is ready to consider the 19-year-old, it remains to be seen whether the England boss believes he warrants a return based on performance.

Speaking after omitting the pair earlier this month, Southgate said: ‘We have to send a message to all our players in our teams at every age level that that sort of thing isn’t how we do things with England.’
