The Premier League season may be on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic but clubs are doing everything they can to ensure their stars are fit and ready to play again when the campaign resumes.

They are also endeavouring to ensure that squad members continue to feel connected, despite having to stay apart in their own homes.

Liverpool's players have been using video technology to do sessions together.

"It helps support the players that are finding it a little more difficult on their own," captain Jordan Henderson told the Reds' official website

Everton’s director of medical services Danny Donachie agrees it is important to maintain the feeling of a team effort, and he believes group workouts have motivational benefits too.

"Each member of fitness staff is overseeing a small group of players," he told the club's official website. "We are hoping to generate competition by doing some sessions together in our training groups.

“We don’t want them to be just sat at home and becoming disengaged and feeling mentally isolated, so it is keeping them feeling part of the group as well."

With that in mind, Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster led a group of team-mates through an intense 20-minute cycling interval training session.
