Premier League and EFL clubs have chosen to fulfil festive fixtures despite ongoing Covid-19 disruption.

The decision comes despite Premier League players returning a record 90 positive tests last week.

The Premier League’s 20 clubs met on Monday to discuss the fixture list after six weekend games were postponed.

No vote took place and so two rounds of fixtures are in place across five days from 26 December, while the EFL will play games “where it is safe to do so”.
