Brighton's Glenn Murray said any suggestion players could wear masks during training was 'farcical' and he was similarly scathing about plans to quarantine players in hotels.

'We have got to look at the Premier League as the global brand it is and the reason it is that big is because of the quality of the players that are in it,' Murray said.

'To be hindering ourselves with face masks is going to be off-putting, it is not going to be natural, people will be ripping them off in games. It is quite farcical.'

And of being forced to stay in hotels, he added: 'I think (that) is far-fetched. It is not just the eight weeks away from your family, it's the knock-on effect of everyone else... there's going to be housekeepers, chefs coming and going, it can't be completely locked down.'
