Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he does not see the benefit of a two-week break to the season, amid fears about a spike in COVID-19 cases.

The Premier League confirmed 18 positive tests between players and staff in its latest round of testing on Tuesday, the highest number of the season so far.

Since then, it has emerged that Fulham’s game in Tottenham on Wednesday night could be canceled, after several cases of coronavirus were recorded on the west side of London.

Manchester City’s trip to Everton on Monday was postponed hours before kickoff, while Aston Villa vs Newcastle was canceled earlier this month after the Magpies were hit by the virus.

But Solskjaer worries what a disruption would do to an already crowded schedule.

“It is not something I have given much thought to. I think our players have been very good at following the protocols and the rules, ”said Solskjaer.

“That is part of the job here, that we, as clubs, follow the given protocols. I don’t see the benefit of having a circuit break, whatever it’s called.

“Because when are we going to play the games? We all know that this year is very difficult, but I don’t think stopping the games will be a big change. “
