Burnley v Everton Postponed

Everton's scheduled Boxing Day match at Burnley has been postponed after a Premier League review of the Club's request due to injuries and positive COVID-19 cases in the Blues' First-Team squad.

A Premier League statement read: "Everton were due to travel to Turf Moor to play on Sunday, at 3pm. The Board reviewed the Club’s request today to postpone the match following further injuries to their squad. They concluded that the club will not be able to fulfil their fixture this weekend as a result of an insufficient number of players available to play due to COVD-19 cases and injuries.

"The Board this morning was able to make its decision in advance of Boxing Day to give clarity to clubs and their fans. We apologise for the inconvenience and disruption caused to those supporters’ festive plans."

Details of the rearranged fixture will be confirmed on Everton Club channels in due course.
