The winter rise in COVID-19 cases is affecting Premier League fixtures, a decidedly unfestive start to the holiday season as a wave of coronavirus cases in Europe and around the world threatens the population.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has called for more vaccinations and boosters while Brighton boss Graham Potter has expressed concern as to how much longer matches can continue under the weight of the still-strong pandemic.

Two more PL matches were postponed Thursday, as Leicester vs Tottenham’s afternoon tilt and the scheduled Saturday match between Manchester United and Brighton at Old Trafford is also off.

Thursday marks the third-straight day with the postponement of a PL fixture, and there’s a guarantee of four days-in-five now that United vs Brighton will be rescheduled.
