The suspension of two games that were to be played on boxing day due to cases of Coronavirus was confirmed. The Premier League continues to suffer from the third wave.
After having enjoyed a quiet day at the Carabao Cup, problems returned to the Premier League. The Coronavirus does not stop stalking the European continent and they once again suspended two games that were going to be played on the famous Boxing Day.
Liverpool-Leeds United and Wolverhampton-Watford will not be able to take place on matchday 19 of the Premier League. The cases are concentrated in the visiting teams and now we have to wait until there is no massive suspension of meetings.
It is not yet known what will happen to the historic Boxing Day. The UK faces one of the worst moments in this third wave and could have a matchday with more than 30,000 average spectators in each stadium. From the organization they want to play the games as it is, but they will notify suspensions in advance.
There is even speculation about the possible suspension of Burnley-Everton for cases in the visiting team. Sean Dyche, the Burnley coach, said it would be hasty to call off the match.
Leeds was one of the Premier League teams that had not suffered suspensions for Coronavirus cases and there was a lot of speculation about that. Marcelo Bielsa’s team is going through its worst moment since being promoted and has more than 10 casualties in the first team.
The coach got to the point of having a 15-year-old on the bench. Fans were angry that they were glancing at the suspensions for two or three Coronavirus cases and insisting that Leeds had to file some cases to take advantage of a suspension.
Wolverhampton was another of those who had to play all their matches from the third wave and had no problems. It is true that his situation is different: he has not had cases of Coronavirus and he has all his players available. An example institution in how they behaved.
Watford has a three-suspension run and has not played since Dec. 10. His coach was concerned more than once at a press conference, but it seems that they do not take measures to avoid contagion.
Claudio Ranieri’s team already owes games against Burnley FC, Crystal Palace and now Wolves. His moment was not the best and he had four consecutive defeats. Fans speculate that there may be some malicious intent in the managers.
Liverpool had no problems and even played yesterday against Leicester. After an intense day at the Carabao Cup, those led by Jürgen Klopp were lucky and will be able to rest for the Christmas holidays.
