Everton Vs Manchester City game has been postponed, due to the increasing cases of the coronavirus. The game which was to be played on Monday 28th December 2020, was postponed after a Premier League Board meeting.
The Everton Vs Manchester City game was postponed after City which has been hit by the virus, lodged a request with the Premier League today to rearrange the match. The request from City came following an increase in positive COVID-19 test results received by the club on Monday morning, on top of the cases reported on Christmas Day.
This rise has created uncertainty and the Premier League Board received medical advice that the Everton Vs Manchester City game should be postponed.
The Board agreed to rearrange the game as a precaution, and further testing will now take place tomorrow.
The decision has been taken with the health of players and staff the priority.
The Premier League continues to have full confidence in its protocols and rules, and the way in which all clubs are implementing them.
The League wishes those with COVID-19 a safe and speedy recovery and will rearrange the postponed fixture against Everton in due course.
