Take note.

A number of Premier League fixtures that were postponed earlier in the season have been rescheduled, with new dates being confirmed.

The majority of these games were postponed due to Covid outbreaks among Premier League squads, something which ended up becoming quite a contentious issue.

Many believed that clubs were getting games called off too often, and it has resulted in quite a few games now needing to be squeezed in across February and March.

Here are the list of rescheduled Premier League fixtures:

Premier League fixtures rescheduled

Since the controversy surrounding the games being postponed too regularly, it seems as though the Premier League has implemented new rules to stop this from happening in the future.

The most recent rules state that: “if a club applies to postpone a match on the grounds of insufficient players due to Covid-19, they must have a minimum of four positive cases within their squad.”

This comes after Arsenal got their game with Spurs called off despite only having one confirmed Covid case.
