The Premier League has postponed Liverpool’s game against Leeds United and the match between Wolves and Watford because of coronavirus.

Both games were scheduled to kick off at 12:30 GMT on Sunday, 26 December but have been called off after requests from Leeds and Watford.

The Premier League said Leeds could not play “due to the number of players with Covid-19, injuries and illness”.

The club’s training ground has also been closed.

Watford have had games against Burnley, Crystal Palace and Wolves postponed because of a Covid-19 outbreak.

A Premier League statement read: “Watford continue to have an insufficient number of players to field a team after their game against Crystal Palace last Saturday was postponed following a Covid-19 outbreak.

“Due to players coming out of isolation, it is fully expected Watford will be available for their fixture on Tuesday 28 December, against West Ham United.”
