Two-Week Break Premier League Up For Discussion

It's in light of a number of covid outbreaks across the league.

Premier League clubs are believed to have discussed a two-week break next month to combat coronavirus outbreaks.

Additional cases at Manchester City caused their top flight game at Everton to be called off on Monday night.

18 new positive tests were recorded in the top flight yesterday.

New West Brom boss Sam Allardyce would be in favour of a shutdown for everyone's safety:

Sheffield United are one of the teams who've been affected.

Speaking after their 1-0 loss to Burnley at Turf Moor last night, manager Chris Wilder said they find themselves in a serious situation.

Elsewhere, Manchester United are up to second in the table after beating Wolves 1-0.

Marcus Rashford scored in injury time at Old Trafford.

Sam Allardyce was brought back down to reality with a bang after coming away from Anfield with a point at the weekend.

His West Brom side were hammered 5-0 by Leeds at the Hawthorns. 

Arsenal beat Brighton 1-0 at the Amex and Southampton and West Ham played out a scoreless draw at St. Mary's.

This evening, Tottenham entertain London neighbours Fulham at 6-o'clock.

And at 8-o'clock leaders Liverpool are away to Newcastle.

 

 

In the EFL Championship,

It's 4th against 3rd at 5.30 this evening when Brentford host Bournemouth.

And at 8 tonight, second placed Swansea take on Reading at the Liberty Stadium.

A win for the hosts would see them head into the New Year just a point behind leaders Norwich.

 


In the Scottish Premiership,

Celtic will look to make it three straight wins when they welcome Dundee United to Parkhead at 3pm.

At the same time, leaders Rangers are away to St. Mirren.
