It was the second successive week with just two positives and further proof of the success of the Premier League’s enhanced protocols.
The last time a clean bill of health was recorded was in the final week of last season.
Prem fans will be allowed back into stadiums this season.
That means the last round of fixtures, to be played on Sunday, May 23, could see up to 10,000 supporters or 25 per cent of capacity, whichever is the smaller back in grounds.
It would also mean good news for the rest of the EFL, with fans allowed in for the play-off finals.
The Championship, League One and League Two showpieces are scheduled to take place on the weekend of May 29 – with 90,000-capacity Wembley the usual venue.
Small numbers of fans were briefly allowed back in grounds in December but after a steep spike in coronavirus cases in the UK, matches were forced back behind closed doors.

But now there is hope, albeit on the very last day of the Premier League season.
The PM told the House of Commons: “The turnstiles of our sports stadia will once again rotate, subject in all cases to capacity limits depending on the size of the venue.”
However Johnson has promised to ‘step on the brakes’ should there be a surge in Covid cases.
