LONDON: The English Football League (EFL) is urged to investigate why a Liverpool player who tested positive for COVID-19 before the postponement of the League Cup semi-final against Arsenal was later found to be negative.

Sports website, The Athletic claims that some EFL clubs want clarification on the exact date Liverpool received the information, whether before the action against Arsenal which will allow the match to continue as usual.

The team also demanded that the EFL conduct an investigation after several applications for a postponement of matches this season as a result of COVID-19 being rejected.

The EFL agreed to postpone the match on Thursday after Liverpool faced an increase in COVID-19 cases in a team that saw Jurgen Klopp, Pep Lijnders and several players quarantined following being found positive.

However, Klopp on Sunday revealed that the increase in cases that led to the postponement of the match against Arsenal was due to ‘many false positives’.

Only Trent Alexander-Arnold really tested positive but those who tested false still could not be brought down in the FA Cup action against Shrewsbury.

Klopp dropped four young players in the starting line-up which saw them clinch a 4-1 victory.

“This is a team we can bring down and the players are playing well,” Klopp said.

“We face a lot of cases but apparently a lot of false positives but they are still not allowed to play.

“Only Alexander-Arnold is really positive while the others are false positives,” he added.
