Four Premier League games rescheduled


Four Premier League games involving Tottenham, Fulham, Aston Villa, Everton and Chelsea have been rescheduled due to the number of coronavirus cases at Aston Villa, according to a statement by the Premier League:

“Aston Villa’s match against Tottenham Hotspur, due to be played at Villa Park on Wednesday 13 January, has been rescheduled following a decision by the Premier League Board. 

“Following Aston Villa’s request to rearrange the fixture, and due to the number of players and staff who have either tested positive for COVID-19 or have been placed in isolation by the club, the Premier League had no other option than to reschedule the match.

“As a result of this rescheduling, Spurs will now play their home match against Fulham in its place, on Wednesday 13 January at 20.15 GMT. The fixture was previously postponed on 30 December. 

“With Fulham now playing on Wednesday 13 January, their home fixture against Chelsea will be moved from Friday 15 January to Saturday 16 January at 17.30 GMT.

“Everton’s match at Aston Villa will be rescheduled from Saturday 16 January 17:30 GMT to Sunday 17 January 12:00 GMT.”

Aston Villa reported 14 positive cases of coronavirus last week, 10 of which are players. The FA Cup third round tie was played with the U23, which the young villains lost 4-1.
