International football rolls on
Despite much of the world still struggling to control the Covid-19 pandemic, and the delayed season already proving extremely busy at club level, international football has continued to roll on.
As such, despite the break being far from over, it has come as little surprise to see a whole host of Premier League stars pick up problems.
Liverpool have been one of the worst affected clubs, losing Joe Gomez to injury earlier this week, before seeing Mohamed Salah test positive Covid-19 on Friday.

Tottenham’s Heung-min Son isolating
Now, on Saturday, another high-profile Premier League star may well have fallen victim to the woes of the international break.
According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham’s Heung-min Son has been forced into quarantine whilst on international duty, after five members of the South Korea camp tested positive for Covid-19.
Son is not believed to be one of those to have tested positive.
However, he is now self-isolating in his hotel room, as the rest of the squad await further test results.
South Korea are expected to face Mexico on Saturday evening, but the results of the aforementioned tests will of course determine whether the clash can actually go ahead.
Spurs are set to face Manchester City next Saturday, and losing Son would represent a huge blow for the Lilywhites.
The forward has already netted eight goals and provided two assists in just eight Premier League outings this term, and is currently the joint-top scorer in the English top-flight.
