Aston Villa’s match at home to Everton on Sunday has been postponed after the Premier League board agreed to a request by Villa, who have experienced a Covid outbreak.

Villa’s entire first-team squad and support staff have been in isolation since last week after nine players and five backroom staff tested positive for the virus.



The club’s Bodymoor Heath training ground was closed as a result.



Most of Villa’s squad and staff cannot emerge from isolation until Sunday at the earliest and Villa had concerns about the feasibility of going from isolation straight into a league game without having trained for nearly two weeks.

The Premier League said: “Following the rescheduling of Villa’s game 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.” Villa’s game at home to Newcastle, which had been due to be played on 4 December but was postponed by of a Covid outbreak at the north-east club, has been rescheduled for Saturday 23 January at 8pm.
