Aston Villa is in talks with the Premier League about the possible postponement of Sunday’s Premier League match at home to Everton due to their current coronavirus problems.
The club closed its training ground last week after nine players and five staff members tested positive for Covid-19, prompting its youth team to play the FA Cup third-round tie against Liverpool.
Villa was scheduled to play Tottenham on Wednesday, but that had to be rescheduled because the training ground has yet to reopen.
Fearing that the situation will continue until the weekend, the Palestinian Authority news agency understands that the club has started talks on the possible postponement of the match against Everton, which has already been postponed 24 hours in the hope of allowing more time to meet the match.
Having had to sit out of his midweek spot this week, Villa is already two games behind most of his top-flight rivals and having to fit into a reshuffled third game will further boost the already stretched schedule.
