Aston Villa have asked the Premier League to postpone their fixture against Everton on Sunday because of the Covid-19 outbreak at the Midlands club.

“PHE has given advice on the management of the Covid-19 cases at Aston Villa,” the agency said in a statement.

Villa fielded a team consisting of under-23 and under-18 players in order to complete their FA Cup tie against Liverpool last week but their league match against Tottenham, slated for Wednesday, was pushed back until later in the season with Fulham instructed to step in and fill the gap in the fixture list by playing Spurs instead.

Villa have concerns about the feasibility of going from isolation straight into a league game without having trained for nearly two weeks.

“PHE provides the same (or equivalent) advice to all workplaces on managing a Covid outbreak, and where appropriate would recommend a review of their infection control processes and compliance with these.” Southampton’s postponed FA Cup third-round tie against Shrewsbury has been rescheduled for 19 January, with next week’s Premier League fixture at Leeds called off as a result.

If the match on Sunday is postponed, Villa will have played three matches fewer than some teams, since they have yet to play the game against Newcastle that was supposed to take place in December but was postponed after a coronavirus outbreak at the north-east club.

The cup tie at St Mary’s had been scheduled for 9 January, but was postponed because of a coronavirus outbreak at the Sky Bet League One club.
