Burnley's match at home to Everton on December 26 has become the latest Premier League fixture to be postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak, it was announced Friday.

Covid-19 cases within the Everton camp had seen the Merseysiders request a postponement on Thursday.

A total of 13 matches have now been called off in the past two weeks as Britain battles record numbers of positive Covid cases due to the Omicron variant of the virus.

Benitez said Thursday he was "surprised" that Everton's game had been expected to go ahead, after two other Boxing Day matches -- Liverpool v Leeds and Wolves v Watford -- were postponed due to Covid cases.
