The Premier League clubs will be having an emergency meeting on Monday, December 20th, 2021 in a bid to postpone the matches on December 28th-30th, 2021.
The Athletic announced on its website on Sunday, December 19th, 2021. According to reports from the news, the Premier League clubs are seeking to ask that the whole round of games be postponed in a bid to allow the clubs recover from the outbreak of the Covid-19 among all the clubs.
The Premier League teams will meet with the board by 1 pm ( UK Time ) to discuss the present outbreak of the Covid-19 that has affected most clubs in the league.
The Premier League board postponed six games this match week, having just to play four games which involved Leeds United vs Arsenal, Newcastle United vs Manchester City, Wolves vs Chelsea and Tottenham vs Liverpool.
According to Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea submitted a request to the Premier League board on Saturday but it was rejected on Sunday morning. The German had to play a depleted team in the 1-1 draw against Wolves and has threatened that his team might not turn up for the game against Brentford in the Quater Final of the Carabao Cup.
