Emergency Premier League meeting to hold amid coronavirus fears
The Premier League will hold an emergency meeting on Friday as Arsenal and Chelsea first-team squads have gone into self-isolation after Gunners manager Mikel Arteta and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive for coronavirus.
The weekend’s Premier League fixtures are now uncertain as Arsenal’s trip to Brighton has already been postponed with other games likely to follow suit in the coming hours.
It remains to be seen if the Premier League will follow the NBA by suspending the ongoing season. The NBA announced that the league will be halted for a minimum of 30 days. Three players at Leicester and one at Manchester City are already in self-isolation.
Although the Premier League announced on Thursday that the weekend’s fixtures would go ahead as planned, it has disclosed that it would: “convene an emergency club meeting regarding fixtures”.
