Omicron Threat: The number of Omicron cases in the United Kingdom was a cause of concern. The number of daily Omicron infections in the UK has been estimated as being at 200,000, according to the UK Health Security Agency.
England’s football league, the Premier League also saw 42 Covid-19 cases amongst players and staff. Thus, Brentford vs Manchester United and Brighton vs Tottenham matches were postponed by the League. United made a request to postpone the match after some staff and four players returned being Covid positive after a weekend game against Norwich City.
Now that two games were postponed in three days owning to the Covid-19 outbreak, dark clouds loom large over the Brighton vs Machester United game slated to play this Saturday. If the cases continue to increase in the Premier League, then Saturday’s game will also have the same fate as that of the Brentford vs United one.
Brentford’s home fixture against Manchester United, due to be played on Tuesday 14 Dec at 19.30 GMT has been postponed
