Norwich hit by Covid scare ahead of Man Utd clash and fear two players will miss game and Aston Villa match

NORWICH boss Dean Smith has revealed that his side have faced a Covid scare.

The Canaries manager revealed that he faced a nervous wait on PCR test results after a couple of players felt 'unwell'.

Norwich face Manchester United amid Covid worries.

Tottenham and Leicester have suffered from outbreaks this week, with the former having matches against Rennes and Brighton postponed.

Spurs beat Norwich 3-0 last weekend.

But Smith doesn't think any potential positive tests within his squad have anything to do with their trip to North London.

He said: "We have got a couple of knocks and have got a couple of Covid-related issues that we are waiting on results for this morning.

"I can't really let you in on any names, but there's a couple of players whom we are worried about, so we have tested and we will wait for the PCR results back on them.
