Over the past week, the English Premier League recorded a record 103 cases of COVID-19 infection among players and clubs’ staff. During the week before it, the EPL recorded 90 positive tests, which at that time was a record figure since May 2020. Interestingly, those numbers didn’t become the reason to postpone the tournament. At an emergency meeting, the clubs decided to continue the championship during the Christmas holidays.
Earlier, due to outbreaks of coronavirus in the teams, the matches of the 20th round of Leeds – Aston Villa and Arsenal – Wolverhampton were postponed. The matches of the 20th round of the Premier League are scheduled for December 28-30. Want to know more about football news in India and don’t miss the important news?
