Kante missed Wednesday training amid fear of Covid 19

 N'Golo Kante missed Wednesday training after the midfielder expressed safety concerns over a return amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The highly-rated midfielder returned to training at Cobham on Tuesday, on the first day Premier League clubs were allowed to resume training in small groups. But opted against training again on Wednesday after he was given permission by his club.

The 29 years had previously lost his older brother to a heart attack just weeks before the World Cup in 2018, while a few months earlier the player himself fainted in training before being given a clean bill of health.

However Watford captain Troy Deeney also skipped Wednesday training over concerns for his son's health, as well as that of BAME players.

Troy Deeney's Watford team-mate Adrian Mariappa was one of six positive results to come back from an initial batch of 748 tests covering both Premier League players and non-playing staff, with two members of Watford staff and Burnley assistant manager Ian Woan also testing positive.

Meanwhile, The Professional Footballers' Association has asked the Premier League to conduct further research into the effect of coronavirus on players from ethnic minority backgrounds.

Information from the Office of National Statistics implies black men and women are almost twice as possible to die from coronavirus compared to whites, even when factors such as health, disability, household composition and area deprivation are taken into account.
