A statement confirmed: "The Premier League can confirm that on Thursday 4 June and Friday 5 June, 1,195 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19.

"Of these, zero have tested positive."

It follows just one positive result from the 1197 tests in round five.

The Premier League is set to return on June 17

The news is another step in the right direction for the Premier League, which is set to resume on June 17, after confirmation of the first three rounds of fixtures and TV schedules this week.

The opening matches will see Arsenal head to champions Manchester City, and Aston Villa host Sheffield United, in fixtures re-arranged due to the League Cup final.

Testing will continue on a twice-weekly basis.

When the action resumes, Premier League stadiums will be divided into three zones as clubs continue to work towards finalising matchday protocols.

Clubs met on Thursday to discuss some of the logistics and West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has revealed how stadiums will be split into three sections.

"We are now in the process of agreeing the matchday protocols, which will include everything from zoning the stadium into red, amber and green zones," Brady said, writing in her Sun column.

"Red zone will be the most severely restricted area, including the pitch, the tunnel, technical areas, changing rooms will be limited to 105 people maximum, to include players, coaching staff, match officials and all the essential staff only.

"And only those who have tested negative for Covid-19 in the past five days can enter this area.

"We will be creating a Clinical Passport System for those who will need to have access to the red zone.

"The amber zone will be restricted to the minimum number of staff required to meet contractual requirements for broadcasting, media and club staff.

"This area includes all interior areas within the stadium and anyone entering this area will be subject to a temperature check and a health questionnaire.

"And the green zone is the stadium exterior, eg car parking."

The league's rule that clubs must pick their strongest available team remains is place, while players must not spit, share drinks or shake hands.
