Sunday's Premier League match between Aston Villa and Everton at Villa Park is off as Villa continue to deal with a coronavirus outbreak at the club. 

The Birmingham club's entire first team and backroom staff have been isolating for a week.

Nine Villa players and five backroom staff have tested positive for the virus, which saw the club field a raft of youth players in last Friday's FA Cup game against Liverpool.

The club's training ground, Bodymoor, is currently closed.

By this Sunday, Villa, who currently lie eighth in the table, will have played three games less than most of the other sides in the top flight.

Villa's match with Newcastle United has been rearranged for Saturday January 23rd at 8pm.
