Leicester’s Premier League trip to Everton on Tuesday has been postponed because the Foxes can not send in a team with enough players to fulfill the match.
The decision comes after both clubs met the Premier League board on Sunday night, with the match canceled for the second time after it was first postponed on December 19.
Brendan Rodgers is without the majority of his first team team due to positive Covid-19 tests, injuries and players away in the Africa Cup of Nations.
A statement from the Premier League read: “The board was able to make its decision before the match to provide clarity to the affected clubs and their fans. We apologize for the inconvenience and disruption caused by supporters who planned to attend and watch the match, and we are aware that launches will disappoint fans.
“The league strives to provide as much clarity as possible, but unfortunately postponements sometimes have to be made at short notice, as safety is our priority. Where possible, the league will strive to keep supporters updated if matches end up in the risk zone on a match day.
“The Board will assess applications to postpone matches on a case-by-case basis, based on existing rules and adapted guidelines for the postponement of covid-19, implemented in the light of the new Omicron variant. The Board will assess a number of factors, including the ability of a club to set up a team; the status, severity and potential effects of the covid-19 outbreak in the club; and the players’ ability to safely prepare for and play the match. get in contact with.
