Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has returned a suspected positive test for Covid-19 and will miss Sunday’s Premier League game against Chelsea.

The 54-year-old is experiencing mild symptoms and is isolating, so his assistant Pep Lijnders will take charge of the visit to Stamford Bridge.

On Friday Klopp said three players had tested positive for Covid-19.

A Liverpool statement said there had been no further cases among the playing squad.
