Everton’s match against Manchester City which was scheduled for tonight has been called off due to positive Covid-19 cases in the City squad. The Premier League decided to cancel the fixture after medical advice following the surge in cases.
Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus tested positive on Christmas day – along with two others – and it now appears that more cases have infiltrated the City camp. There are now a large number of cases within the squad. The players infected with the virus remain unnamed for the time being – bar Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus.
City are scheduled to face Chelsea at the weekend. The city players returned to training on Wednesday following a short period of isolation.
The Manchester City vs. Everton match has been rescheduled to take place at the end of the season.
