Covid chaos and the Premier League: This weekend’s races at risk

The English Premier League is suffering from an increase in Covid-19 infections in many English clubs.

Covid continues to wipe out the Premier League. After Leicester-Tottenham and Manchester United-Brighton were postponed due to the many positive aspects that appeared in the two teams, Brentford-Manchester United, Burnley-Watford were added in this round. The tragic situation in the UK seems to have no end: in fact, these days, the country is struggling with a huge jump in infections, due to the Omicron variant. Among the clubs most involved, there are Manchester United, Leicester, Brentford and Tottenham, for the club led by Antonio Conte, this is also the third postponement, after the match with Rennes in the Conference League and with Brighton in the Premier League. According to Sky UK, British football leaders are considering halting league matches this week. Brentford coach Thomas Frank expressed himself on this premise: “Cases of Covid-19 have risen in all English Premier League clubs. Postponing this round as well as the Carabao Cup round will give all clubs at least a week or 4-5 days to clean everything up and get back to the training ground. It’s important that football continues and by stopping now we can at least keep Boxing Day alive.”
