DUE to the high increase in the number of positive coronavirus cases, West Bromwich Albion manager, Sam Allardyce, has called for the suspension of fixture.

The manager called for a circuit-breaking fortnight-long suspension of the fixture with him making reference to his own health, but it appears other Premier League bosses are determined not to shut down the season.

"Everyone’s safety is more important than anything else.

“When I listen to the news that the variant virus transmits quicker than the original virus, we can only do the right thing, which is have a circuit break. Allardyce said.

“I am 66 years old and the last thing I want to do is catch Covid.”

The virus has already altered a Premier League fixture, as the match between Manchester City and Everton was postponed, following an outbreak of the pandemic in the Manchester Club first team.

City has already carried out a test on its staff and players and are expecting the results today.
