The Premier League game between Aston Villa and Everton on Sunday has been called off because of the continued impact of a coronavirus outbreak at Villa.

Villa vs. Everton is the sixth Premier League game to be postponed since December, with the league announcing on Monday it recorded 36 new COVID-19 cases last week even as the English top-flight season continues without pause despite a surge in infections across the country and numerous fixtures being postponed.



A Premier League statement read: "The Premier League, in consultation with its clubs, has enhanced its COVID-19 protocols, in addition to reimplementing a twice-weekly testing programme as the heath of players and staff remains the priority.



Their Premier League fixture against Tottenham this midweek was then postponed while the game against Everton, originally scheduled for Saturday, was pushed back a day.

Villa's training ground remains closed following a number of positive COVID-19 cases at the club last week.

Meanwhile, Leeds vs. Southampton, originally set for Jan. 20, has been postponed to allow the visitors to fulfil their FA Cup third round clash with Shrewsbury Town, which had been cancelled due to rising COVID-19 cases.

Despite growing pressure to temporarily halt the season, the Premier League decided not to schedule a mid-season break, saying it had "confidence in its COVID-19 protocols to enable fixtures to be played."
