The FIFA ban places some of the Brazillian players on a five-day ban which would affect the Premier League clubs the most. A total of eight players have been stopped from playing for their clubs and the list even includes Liverpool's Roberto Firmino and Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus. While talks have taken place to find a workaround but both the Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Leeds, Chelsea, Wolves, Newcastle and Watford would be at a disadvantage.
The 10-day isolation rule by the UK government has also forced some of the players to miss the upcoming matches. The worst-hit is taken by Chelsea and United as Blues defender Thiago Silva and Red Devils’ midfielder Fred would even miss the Champions league’s opening matches on Tuesday.
