BURNLEY have made an application to the Premier League to postpone their home match with Watford.
The Clarets successfully cancelled their proposed match with Leicester on Sunday following an appeal to the league.
现在, their relegation six-pointer against Watford may also be rescheduled.
他们在一份声明中说: “Burnley Football Club can confirm it has made an application to the Premier League for the postponement of Tuesday night’s match at home to Watford.
“The decision was reluctantly made to submit the application due to a high number of injuries and Covid-19 cases within the squad.
“The Premier League Board will meet later today to review the application and inform both clubs of its decision.”
Burnley only named seven players on the bench for their last game, an FA Cup defeat to Huddersfield Town – four of which were academy players.
And Chris Wood, who started that match, has since moved to Newcastle in a £25million deal – leaving Sean Dyche short of attacking options.
Arsenal’s trip to North London rivals Tottenham was also axed after having application to postpone the derby accepted.
