Matches suspended! – Premier League



Leeds-Aston Villa and Arsenal-Wolves have been suspended for coronavirus cases. The Premier League continues to postpone matches and the question remains as to where they will fit in the future.

The third wave of coronavirus stalks the UK and football is not exempt. The Premier League decided to give rise to the claim of the teams and first suspended Leeds ‘s match against Aston Villa.

Marcelo Bielsa’s team has coronavirus cases and has 10 injured players. What prevents you from presenting professional equipment. Leeds did not play on Boxing Day against Liverpool for the same reason and it was speculated at this time that it was the only team that did not fail being injured.

From the Premier League they gave rise to their request to postpone their meeting again for the 20th match against Aston Villa, a team that also presented problems in the preparation. His coach, Steven Gerrard, tested positive and could not be on the bench coaching Chelsea.

The suspension of matchday 20 continues: Arsenal-Wolverhampton will not be played. The visiting team coach, Bruno Lage, was upset at not being able to present the team between injuries and coronavirus cases and the organization took note.

Wolverhampton has among those infected three of its holders: Hwang Hee-Chan, Rayan Ait-Nouri and Willy Boly.

Premier League decided to suspend Wolves’ visit to London. The visiting team did not play on Boxing Day either, but not because of their cases, but because Watford -rival of day 19- presented the order.

The speculations continue: from some sectors they comment that the clubs abuse the orders and try to take advantage when they have injured teams. In total, 15 games have been suspended.
