BOXING DAY football has been and gone in the Premier League and EFL with more matches are being postponed after positive Covid-19 tests.

18 out of 20 clubs were set to be in action on Boxing Day before postponements, with Manchester United visiting Newcastle on December 27.

Liverpool’s match against Leeds on Boxing Day has been postponed

Three Premier League games were been called off, with Liverpool’s game against Leeds, Watford’s trip to Wolves and Burnley vs Everton being put back.

Fans will be hoping more top flight games aren’t postponed due to rising rates of the highly contagious Omricon variant of Covid-19.

There were just two games scheduled to take place in the Championship, four in League One and three in League Two on December 26.

There was anger as Blackburn’s trip to Hull was cancelled at the last minute, just under two hours till kick off, when Rovers fans had already made their way to Humberside for the Championship clash.
