Re-emergence of coronavirus in UK has affected the Premier League.
In recent days, important matches such asManchester City
and last night's game betweenFulham
were postponed due to the outbreak of coronavirus. The Football Association said in a statement that the number of people infected with the coronavirus in the new round of testing was not high, and thus the schedule of other
matches will be followed according to the previous routine.
Also, in a new test taken from
members, no one was infected with the coronavirus, which is why the next match between the Citizens andChelsea
will take place. More tests will be taken on Thursday and Saturday before the match against Chelsea, and the final decision will be made.
Following the postponement of Tottenham's match against Fulham just hours before the start of the match, the league said in a statement:
"The Premier League has not discussed pausing the season and has no plans to do so.
"The League continues to have confidence in its Covid-19 protocols to enable fixtures to be played as scheduled, and these protocols continue to have the full backing of Government.
"With the health of players and staff the priority, the League is also fully supportive of how clubs are implementing the protocols and rules."
