The postponed fixture between Burnley and Leicester has been officially rescheduled.
The match, originally due to be played on 15th January, will now be played on Tuesday 1st March at 19:45 GMT.
The game will be played at Turf Moor and will not be televised live to UK viewers.
January’s Burnley v Leicester fixture was postponed due to a number of first team injuries and Covid-19 cases in the Burnley squad.
The Premier League board approved the postponement application that was submitted by Burnley, with the club “send[ing] their apologies to both sets of supporters for the inconvenience”.
Tickets purchased for the original fixture will still be valid for the rearranged game.
Burnley, who are currently bottom of the Premier League, will now face Leicester in between a trip to Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace on Saturday 26th February and a visit from Chelsea on Saturday 5th March.
Clarets boss Sean Dyche won’t be pleased to pick up an extra game just days before challenging third-place Chelsea, but his side have now played the least number of matches in the league, and the Premier League board will be eager to get things back on track.
Mid-table Leicester look set to have a slightly more appealing run-in, with no game taking place the weekend before the rescheduled fixture, and a battle against 15th place Leeds the Saturday after.
Fans will be pleased that matches are being rescheduled as there were 22 games postponed prior to the end of January.
Following recent guidance, Premier League clubs will now need to show four positive Covid-19 cases in order to have a match called off.
This follows controversial decisions about game cancellations, with teams citing coronavirus, injuries, international duty and suspensions as reasons for games being postponed.
