Premier League plans to stick with winter break despite postponements | Football News


The Premier League has no plans to use the winter break as a time for clubs to catch up with postponed matches.

A total of 22 top-flight games have been called off so far, largely because of a lack of available players due to the spike in Covid cases.

Clubs that have fewer than 13 outfield players fit and able to play can apply for a postponement.

But the Premier League still intends to keep the near two-week break clear this winter.

After Tottenham vs Chelsea this Sunday, January 23, there is no Premier League fixture until February 5, with Watford and Burnley’s game re-arranged to the same weekend as the FA Cup fourth round.
