Manchester United are planning to face West Brom on Friday after plans to play against Stoke were shelved earlier this week.
Stoke City were due to face United at Carrington but their manager Michael O’Neill is believed to have turned around before getting to the training ground upon finding out that he had tested positive for coronavirus.
Although O’Neill never entered the Aon Training Complex, it is believed that the training ground underwent a full deep clean after a 72-hour lockdown.
According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United will now press ahead with plans to face West Bromwich Albion today in two one-hour games in order to get as many players involved as possible.
We reported earlier this week that Ole Gunnar Solskjær was keen on at least one friendly game before next weeks trip to Tottenham Hotspur and it seems like the manager has gotten what he wished for.
West Bromwich Albion are currently pushing for promotion to the Premier League and will surely provide good competition as they plan for the resumption of their domestic league as well.
