On December 21, it was announced that the EPL clubs refused to postpone the Boxing Day matches due to Covid-19 safety reasons, despite some objections from several clubs and the league management.
Yesterday, the league received two postponement requests from Leeds United and Watford, ones of the most affected clubs. The matches between Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Watford and Liverpool v Leeds United were supposed to start at 12:30 GMT on Sunday, and the new fixtures are not determined yet.
Besudes, some clubs were forced to close the training grounds and stop trainings. However, Watford has all chances to take part in the Tuesday game against West Ham United, as its players are gradually coming out of the quarantine and become available again.
The Leeds has suffered from Covid-19, but a large part of the rosters is also injured, so they lost a significant number of players and won’t be able to fulfil the upcoming match.
