Southampton-Newcastle match postponed due to COVID

LONDON (AFP) – Southampton’s home match against Newcastle tomorrow is the latest Premier League fixture to be called off after a coronavirus outbreak in the visitors’ camp.

“Sunday’s Premier League clash between Southampton and Newcastle United at St Mary’s Stadium has been postponed due to ongoing COVID-19 cases and injuries amongst the Magpies’ first-team squad,” said a Newcastle statement.

The Premier League said it had accepted the request to postpone the match because Newcastle did not have the required number of players available (13 outfield players and one goalkeeper).
