ANKARA (AA) - The English Premier League board on Thursday postponed Leicester City’s week 17 match against Tottenham Hotspur slated for Thursday evening.

In a statement, the Premier League said the game at King Power Stadium has been postponed due to an increase in positive COVID-19 cases within Leicester’s squad.

“Following consultation with the Premier League and UK Health Security Agency, the club’s (Leicester) first-team training ground was closed this morning to help contain the outbreak,” the statement added.

Meanwhile, Manchester United’s game against Brighton and Hove Albion, scheduled for Dec. 18, has also been called off by the board.

The Premier League has 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 COVID-19 cases across the country.
