🚨BREAKING: Leeds game vs Aston Villa postponed

The Premier League game between Aston Villa and Leeds United that was set for Tuesday, December 28, 2021, has been postponed.

In a statement, Villa noted: "Aston Villa can confirm our Premier League fixture with Leeds United on Tuesday, December 28 has been postponed due to Covid cases in the Leeds squad.

"Everyone at Aston Villa would like to send our best wishes and a speedy recovery to everyone affected at Leeds United."

On their end, Leeds said they had no new Covid cases in the team but those affected before had not fully recovered.

"Whilst there have been no new COVID cases in the playing squad, the majority of those who tested positive prior to the Liverpool game is not yet out of isolation. Therefore, we still do not have enough recognized first-team players to meet the Premier League requirements for the fixture," Leeds said in a statement.

Villa's last match against Burnley was among the list of fixtures to fall victim to the recent rise in Covid cases and was postponed by the Premier League with calls being raised for the postponement of the league in recent games.
