The Premier League changes program due to Covid-19. The English championship is forced to reshape the calendar according to the needs of the teams, for weeks again forced to deal with the athletes positive for the virus. The match between Aston Villa and Tottenham, which should have taken place on Wednesday 13 January, has been postponed after the request of the ‘Villans’ of Birmingham after the numerous cases of positive virus in the squad.
How the program changes
Many positives, Aston Villa at risk of an outbreak
Instead of the Birmingham match, the Josè Mourinho’s Tottenham will play anyway, but in one of the many London derbies, against Fulham. This match, originally scheduled for December 30 last year, had also been postponed for coronavirus cases.

New placement on the calendar also for Aston Villa-Everton, which will no longer be played on Saturday 16 January, but the day after, that is Sunday 17.
