The Premier League clash between Aston Villa and Burnley, which was to be played on Saturday, has now been called off.

The fixture becomes the latest to be postponed due to rising cases of COVID-19.

Villa vs Burnley was to kick off at 4pm (WAT), but now becomes the 10th top flight game to be moved this week, having been scheduled to kick off at 3pm (GMT).

Leeds United host Arsenal in Saturday’s only remaining Premier League fixture.

“Aston Villa can confirm that today’s Premier League fixture with Burnley has been postponed due to an increased amount of positive Covid-19 test results within our playing squad.

“The results of PCR tests, which were taken yesterday prior to training as well as Lateral Flow Tests, were received this morning and confirmed further depletion of our playing squad which was already impacted upon for our trip to Norwich in midweek.

“All individuals who tested positive are now isolating in line with Premier League and government guidance and protocols.

“The Club is extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused to Burnley Football Club, both our own supporters and the Burnley fans due to attend the fixture but have acted as swiftly as possible this morning to minimise disruption,” a statement from Villa said
