Villa vs Everton postponed due to coronavirus

Aston Villa’s Premier League match versus Everton on Sunday has been postponed due to an ongoing coronavirus outbreak at the club.

Villa were forced to close their Bodymoor Heath training ground last week after a “large number” of Villa’s first-team players and staff tested positive.

First-team training was also cancelled ahead of their game with Liverpool in the FA Cup third round on January 8. 10 first-team players were forced to self-isolate.

Dean Smith’s side’s match against Tottenham on Wednesday was also called off – Jose Mourinho’s team faced Fulham at home in a rescheduled match instead.

A team of academy and U23 players were fielded in Villa’s 4-1 defeat to Liverpool, with many first-team regulars sidelined under coronavirus protocols.

Newcastle’s postponed match at Aston Villa, which was due to be played on 4 December 2020, has been rescheduled and will now be played on Saturday, 23 January at 8pm, live on Sky Sports.

Villa are also due to face Manchester City (January 20), Burnley (January 27) and Southampton (30 January) before the end of the month.
