In a photo which is believed to have been posted by one of the footballer’s friends on Instagram, the four players are pictured in one house with 11 other adults, two children and a baby.

Across the rest of the country, up to three households were allowed to meet on Christmas Day only.
Those living in Tier 4 areas must stay at home, apart from limited exemptions set out in law which include work and education. People are not allowed to meet others indoors, unless you live with them or they are part of your support bubble.
The gathering is believed to have taken place in Lo Celso’s house with replicas of the Ligue 1 and Coupe de la Ligue trophies, which he won during his time at Paris Saint-Germain, pictured in the background.

Lanzini has played in all three of West Ham’s festive fixtures against Brighton, Southampton and Everton.
Spurs had their game on Wednesday called off following a coronavirus outbreak at Fulham.
Jose Mourinho called the Premier League ‘unprofessional’ for the last-minute postponement of the match.
Reguilon revealed before Christmas that Mourinho had gifted him a suckling pig because he would be spending the occasion by himself
The defender told Spanish newspaper AS: ‘For example on Christmas day, he knows that I am alone.
‘We got to training on the 25th at 3pm and I had a box on my seat. I open it and it was a suckling pig already cooked.
‘He told me, “I know you are alone at Christmas so you don’t have to cook dinner and eat well”.’
Jose Mourinho’s side host Leeds today while West Ham played Everton on Friday.
