Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea join forces to bring Brazil and Uruguay players back to England as soon as possible.
Nine players currently playing for English Premier League teams will participate in the match Brazil against Uruguay on the morning of October 15 (Hanoi time). Among these, Man Utd has Edinson Cavani and Fred, Man City has Ederson and Gabriel Jesus, and Liverpool has Alisson and Fabinho.
Chelsea midfielder Thiago Silva, Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz and Leeds midfielder Raphinha are also expected to board the same plane to return to England. The cost of renting a plane is up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Therefore, sharing will be an economical solution.
Tottenham are more difficult than most because their four South American players have two for Argentina against Peru in Buenos Aires – Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero. The other two are Colombian international Davinson Sanchez and Brazil international Emerson Royal. But “Rooster” also plans to bring them back by plane to prepare for the match against Newcastle.
These flights will comply with strict isolation regulations. All passengers must wear masks to make the immigration process easier.
Even sending players home early, the clubs are not sure to solve the personnel problem because they need time to recover physically. Except for two goalkeepers Ederson and Alisson, the remaining players are unlikely to be able to play.
Liverpool have to race against the fastest time because Brazil’s match and their match against Watford are only 35 hours apart.
Man City, Man Utd, Leeds and Aston Villa have another two and a half hours to prepare while Chelsea have 40 hours to wait for Silva to recover before the match against Brentford.
Four of the affected clubs received good news when England dropped Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay from the “red zone”. Thus, Cavani (Man Utd), Lo Celso and Romero (Tottenham), Emi Martinez (Aston Villa), Miguel Almiron (Newcastle) will not have to be isolated for 10 days.
