The Premier League has vowed to continue despite yet another fixture falling foul of a Covid-19 outbreak.
With Monday's meeting between Everton and Manchester City having befallen the same fate, suggestions have grown that a suspension of all top-flight action might be imminent.
However, in a statement detailing the reasons behind the latest rescheduling, the Premier League insist they are confident their protocols can keep the games coming.
"The Premier League Board has consulted its medical advisors and the decision to postpone the game has been taken as a precaution and with the health of players and staff as the priority. The group will now be retested immediately.
"With low numbers of positive tests across the overwhelming majority of clubs, the Premier League continues to have full confidence in its COVID-19 protocols and being able to continue to play our fixtures as scheduled.
