The latest on Arsenal vs Leeds after yet another Premier League game is called off

Aston Villa vs Burnley called off

In an ever-shortening fixture list in England, yet another Premier League game has been called off.



It becomes the fifth game of the week to have been put on ice after COVID outbreaks across the Premier League.

As per an official statement from the home side:

“Aston Villa can confirm that today’s Premier League fixture with Burnley has been postponed due to an increased amount of positive Covid-19 test results within our playing squad.

“The results of PCR tests, which were taken yesterday prior to training as well as Lateral Flow Tests, were received this morning and confirmed further depletion of our playing squad which was already impacted upon for our trip to Norwich in midweek.

“All individuals who tested positive are now isolating in line with Premier League and government guidance and protocols.

“The club is extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused to Burnley Football Club, both our own supporters and the Burnley fans due to attend the fixture but have acted as swiftly as possible this morning to minimise disruption.”

This leaves just one Premier League game left on Saturday as it stands, Arsenal vs Leeds.

Amid increasing calls for the League to be paused, it remains good news for Arsenal fans, and less so for an injury-ridden Leeds United side.

According to the Premier League:

The remaining four Premier League matches due to be played this weekend are currently scheduled to proceed as planned.

For Arsenal fans already on the road to North Yorkshire, it will be welcome news, as they look to add another win to their latest run of form.
