Sky ‘breaking news’ confirms how long Premier League games will now be suspended for

Sky News have shared some big ‘breaking news’ in the last few moments, revealing that English Football League fixtures will now be suspended until April 4th.

This comes following a meeting between Premier League chiefs this morning, who have been forced to reconsider (after claiming games would go ahead last night) following confirmation that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta and Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi were diagnosed with COVID-19.

As a result, it now looks like games will be postponed for a minimum of the next THREE weeks:

The English Football League is to suspend all fixtures until 4 April, Sky News understands.

It comes as Premier League chiefs meet to discuss the top division’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, as Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta and Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi were diagnosed with COVID-19.

With this in mind, our upcoming games against Sheffield United and Manchester City (FA Cup) will be postponed and rearranged – meaning our next game could be a trip to Bournemouth on April 4th IF games do resume on the date initially set.

Official confirmation from the league is yet to arrive, but it looks increasingly likely that this is the plan.
