Aston Villa’s game against Everton is the latest Women’s Super League match to be called off this weekend due to Covid-19 cases.
Chelsea against Tottenham on Friday has already been postponed due to a combination of Covid-19 cases and injuries in Emma Hayes’ squad, while Manchester United’s WSL trip to West Ham on Sunday has also been called off, due to an outbreak in the Hammers squad.
Both matches were set to be shown live on Sky Sports as the WSL returns from the winter break, but will now be played at a later date.
It is the second WSL game in a row that has been postponed for both Chelsea and West Ham, after their meeting in the final round of fixtures before the winter break was called off because of Covid-19 cases in the Blues squad.
A Chelsea statement said: “Chelsea FC can confirm that Friday’s fixture against Tottenham Hotspur Women will be rescheduled.
“The decision was agreed between both teams and the FA after a number of positive tests for Covid-19 were returned within the Chelsea FC Women’s team set-up after the last round of testing, combined with a number of players that are unavailable for selection due to injury.
“Those who returned positive tests immediately began a period of self-isolation in accordance with Public Health England and Government guidelines.”
