Aston Villa correspondent Gregg Evans was one of the first to share news of a further Covid-19 outbreak at Bodymoor Heath.
And a number of Villa fans were quick to give their thoughts to the update on social media.
Villa suffered a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday afternoon, and less than 24 hours later, decided to cancel a Sunday training session for a handful of players following a number of positive cases at the club.
At the time, only one positive case was thought to be a player, however, Gerrard confirmed on Monday that two more players have returned a positive result and will miss the trip to Norwich City this evening.
A number of training ground staff have also tested positive, however, it looks as if the meeting at Carrow Road will go ahead as planned despite Villa’s outbreak.
How many more signings should Gerrard make after signing Coutinho?
Villa fans react
Evans shared the news regarding Villa’s Covid-19 outbreak on Twitter on Sunday afternoon.
This is what these Villa fans had to say in reply…
“Can today get any worse”
“Oh here we gooo.”
“Don’t be Emi, don’t be Emi…”
“So it begins”
“Football is gonna get paused again isn’t it?”
