Man United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United are among the sides who will gain from the new quarantine regulations.
The coronavirus red list has been updated by the UK government.
The government’s new quarantine laws have benefited a number of Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United. Following substantial modifications to the UK red list, South American players will no longer be required to quarantine upon their return to England in the coming days.
United’s Edinson Cavani, Tottenham’s Argentine combo Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero, Newcastle’s Miguel Almiron, and Aston Villa’s Emi Martinez will no longer be required to isolate for ten days.
Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay are among the South American countries that have been dropped from the list, which now only includes Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Panama, Peru, and Venezuela.
As long as Colombia remains on the red list, Spurs’ Davinson Sanchez and Everton’s Yerry Mina, as well as Brighton’s Jeremy Sarmiento, who represents Ecuador, will be subjected to forced quarantine.
Returning players, on the other hand, will be confused by the latest statement.
Brazil’s first of three qualifiers took place in Colombia earlier this month, requiring those returning to quarantine despite their own country’s removal from the red list.
As a result, nine Premier League players will be unavailable for this weekend’s games due to their participation in the Brazil World Cup.
Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson, Liverpool’s Alisson, Chelsea’s Thiago Silva, and Manchester United defensive midfielder Fred are among those named.
Other players who will be unavailable include City forward Gabriel Jesus, Liverpool’s Fabinho, Leeds United’s Raphinha, and Villa’s Douglas Luiz.
However, with the last round of qualifications likely to take place on Thursday night and Friday morning UK time in October, there are no guarantees that individuals who have been in South America will be able to compete in the Premier League this weekend.
Spurs were planning on flying their four South American players home on a private plane ahead of Sunday’s match against Newcastle, but that might all change now.
Last week, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel chastised FIFA for their international calendar, claiming that Silva’s call-up had put his team in an unsustainable situation.
“He’ll go, then play for Brazil, and then he’ll come back on the day of the match against Brentford,” Tuchel said.
“This is international breaks’ life, this is international breaks’ scenario in 2021.”
