Two of the club’s match schedules were altered today according to a statement by the league:
“Aston Villa’s home match against Everton, scheduled to be played on Sunday 17 January at 12:00 GMT, has been postponed by the Premier League Board.
“Following the rescheduling of Villa’s fixture against Tottenham Hotspur, which was due to be played last night, a significant number of players and staff remain in isolation.
“As a result, the Premier League Board has agreed to Aston Villa’s request to postpone their match on Sunday.
“Newcastle United’s postponed match at Aston Villa, which was due to be played on 4 December 2020, has been rescheduled and will now be played on Saturday 23 January at 20:00 GMT, live on Sky Sports.”
Aston Villa reported 14 cases of coronavirus, 10 of which are players and has caused alterations to schedules. The club played their third round FA Cup tie against Liverpool with U23 players and lost 4-1.
