Goodison Park

Goodison Park encounter due to be played on Monday will not take place

Manchester City's fixture at Everton, due to be played at 8pm this evening, has been postponed following a Premier League Board meeting.

Manchester City lodged a request with the Premier League today to rearrange the match following an increase in positive COVID-19 test results received by the club this 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 match 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.
