The Foxes are due to host Crystal Palace on Saturday and will also welcome Sheffield United and Manchester United.

A Leicester City spokesman said: “The Club has today consulted with local authorities, its Safety Advisory Group and the Premier League, following Monday night’s Government announcement relative to coronavirus measures in Leicester.

“All parties remain entirely satisfied that, through the continued implementation of our COVID-19 operations plan, the Club’s football operations can continue to safely function under existing protocols and, in doing so, there will be no greater risk posed to Club personnel, visiting teams or our surrounding communities. Consequently, first-team training will continue at Belvoir Drive and our forthcoming Premier League fixtures remain unaffected.

“The Club remains agile to the evolving nature of the situation and suitable continuity arrangements are in place in the event we are required to deviate from our existing protocols.

“The Foxes Fanstore at King Power Stadium has closed, in line with local requirements for non-essential retail. Personnel working on-site remains limited to staff performing essential business functions that cannot be completed from home.

We urge our supporters in the city to stay home where possible and to continue to follow the latest localised advice, available at www.leicester.gov.uk.”
