Burnley vs Man Utd: Two players out of Rangnick squad for EPL clash

Manchester United will be short of two vital players Alex Telles and Fred, as they go against Burnley in the Premier League game on Tuesday. The duo, was reportedly tested positive to COVID-19.

However, Ralf Rangnick will have Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani back in the squad.

United have now confirmed Telles missed their FA Cup defeat to Middlesbrough on Friday after testing positive before the match, while Fred reported to training on Monday only to be sent home.

Telles should recover in time to play against Southampton on Saturday, but Fred is now a major doubt to feature in that game, as he will need to be isolated for at least the next five days.

“The Brazilian pair have tested positive for Covid-19, meaning they now have to isolate in line with Government guidelines,” a United statement read.

Telles and Fred are the only absentees in Rangnick’s squad aside from Mason Greenwood, who remains suspended following his arrest.
