English Premier League

Two Boxing Day Premier League fixtures have been postponed due to an increase in coronavirus cases. 

Wolverhampton vs Watford and Liverpool vs Leeds United fixtures will not go on as scheduled after the Premier League agreed to call off the two matches due to an increase in coronavirus cases.

“Following postponement requests from Leeds United and Watford as a result of COVID-19, the Premier League Board met this morning and regrettably agreed to call off the two affected clubs’ Boxing Day fixtures,” a statement from the Premier League read.

“The two matches are Wolverhampton Wanderers v Watford and Liverpool v Leeds United, both due to be played on Sunday at 12:30 GMT.”


“The Board today was able to make its decisions in advance of Boxing Day to give clarity to clubs and their supporters. We apologise for the inconvenience and disruption caused to those fans’ festive plans.”


“Watford continue to have an insufficient number of players to field a team after their match against Crystal Palace last Saturday was postponed following a COVID-19 outbreak.”

“Due to players coming out of isolation, it is fully expected Watford will be available for their fixture on Tuesday 28 December, against West Ham United.”
