Breaking news

Burnley’s home game against Leicester City on Saturday has been postponed because of Covid-19 cases and injuries within the Turf Moor side’s camp.

The Premier League said it accepted Burnley’s request to call the game off as the Clarets did not have enough players to fulfil the fixture.

Premier League rules say a club must play a game if they have 13 outfield players and one goalkeeper available.

It is the 20th top-flight game to be postponed this season because of Covid.
