Burnley match vs Leicester off due to COVID; City new cases

KION 2020

LONDON (AP) — Burnley’s shortage of players due to coronavirus cases and injuries has led to its Premier League match against Leicester being postponed. The league accepted Burnley’s case that it didn’t have enough squad members available to play Saturday’s match. It is the 20th Premier League match postponed since Dec. 12 due to players having to isolate. Relegation-threatened Burnley has already played three games fewer than last-place Norwich, which is a point behind in last place. COVID-19 outbreaks continue to impact other teams with Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen ruled out of Saturday’s game at Manchester City while isolating. City also has new cases though manager Pep Guardiola wouldn’t identify how many or who on Friday.
