Another Premier League game has been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

The Premier League encounter between Aston Villa and Everton has been officially postponed, due to the coronavirus outbreak at Villa Park

“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,” read the statement at the Premier League official website.

There was also another change in the schedule, as Villa’s game against Newcastle which was due to be played on 04 December 2020 is now set to be played on January 23.

Aston Villa played with their youth squad in the 4-1 defeat to Liverpool in the FA Cup last Friday.

They also saw their clash with Tottenham postponed, as the Spurs took on Fulham on Wednesday evening.
