ANKARA (AA) - The English Premier League was forced on Friday to postpone another match this weekend due to coronavirus infections among Everton players.
"Our Premier League fixture at Burnley on Boxing Day has been postponed due to the number of COVID cases and injuries in our squad," the side, which was due to face Burnley, said on Twitter.
The Premier League said Everton requested to call off the away fixture, which was due to be held at Turf Moor on Sunday at 1500 GMT and will now be rescheduled.
Earlier on Thursday, the English top-flight league had postponed two other Boxing Day matches -- Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Watford and Liverpool vs. Leeds United -- over coronavirus cases.
The Premier League recently reverted to emergency COVID-19 measures, including protocols such as more frequent testing, wearing face coverings while indoors, and observing social distancing after the recent rise in infections across the country.
