Aston Villa's Premier League game at home to Everton on Sunday has been postponed because of the ongoing Covid-19 issues at the club.

A Premier League statement said that a "significant number" of Villa players and staff remained in isolation.

It went on: "As a result, the Premier League board has agreed to Aston Villa's request to postpone their match on Sunday."

Villa's Covid-19 outbreak meant that no first-team players were available for the FA Cup third-round tie against Liverpool last Friday.

The West Midlands club had to field a starting XI composed of seven under-23 players and four from the under-18s, at Villa Park.

One of the matches they have in hand - the game at home to Newcastle, which was postponed from 4 December after the Magpies' own coronavirus outbreak - has been rescheduled for Saturday, 23 January.

Villa, who already have three games in hand on some clubs in the league, are due to play Manchester City on Wednesday.
