Burnley postpone Premier League match vs Leicester due to ‘insufficient number of first-team players’

Burnley’s Premier League match against Leicester on Saturday has been postponed.

It is the fourth Burnley match this season to be postponed due to Covid-19 but the first time the request has come from the Turf Moor club. The relegation-threatened Clarets also had another fixture, against Tottenham, postponed at short notice due to heavy snow.

A league statement said: “The Premier League Board accepted Burnley’s application as the club does not have the required number of players available for the match (13 outfield players and one goalkeeper), due to COVID-19 cases
and injuries.”
