The match between Leicester and Everton on 11 January has been postponed following COVID-19 cases, injuries and international duty.

“Everton’s match against Leicester City at Goodison Park, due to be played at 20:00 GMT on Tuesday 11 January, has regrettably been postponed,” the English Premier League (EPL) said on its website.

The Premier League Board accepted Leicester’s application as the club do not have the required number of players available for the match (13 outfield players and one goalkeeper) due to COVID-19 cases, injuries and players on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Board was able to make its decision in advance of the fixture to give clarity to the affected clubs and their fans.

“We apologise for the inconvenience and disruption caused to supporters who planned on attending and watching the game, and we are aware that postponements will disappoint fans,” the board said.
