Journalist reveals date PL games look set to resume with suspension announcement now imminent

According to The Mirror’s Tom Hopkinson, the Premier League, EFL and FA look set to suspend all fixtures until April 3rd.

This comes following the widespread coronavirus pandemic, with it now confirmed that players/staff at SEVERAL Premier League clubs are in self-isolation after being affected by the virus.

Should Hopkinson be right, this would then lead to a 3-week break, meaning our scheduled games against Sheffield United and Man City (FA Cup) would be postponed and rescheduled.

These claims have now been backed up by the BBC’s Dan Roan and The Mail’s chief writer Matt Hughes, who also report that games look set to resume in the first week of April:

If this proves to be true, it could mean fixtures resume for of our trip to Bournemouth on April 4th after the upcoming international break at the end of the month, however it seems likely that it is postponed beyond this date if the situation does not clear up quickly.

Elsewhere, it’s also been reported that the ‘vast majority’ of Premier League clubs believe season must be completed , while TWO clubs have asked for a cancellation.

Time will tell what’s actually going to be implemented by the league, but it seems an official announcement is now imminent with a meeting expected to take place at 10.30am.
