Burnley have made a request to the Premier League to postpone their huge bottom of the table clash with Watford.

Sean Dyche’s side who are bottom of the table are scheduled to host the Hornets at 7.30pm on Tuesday evening in a relegation six-pointer.

However they have made an application to the Premier League for the game to be pushed back due to a ‘number of injuries and Covid-19 cases’ within the club.

Burnley have requested the Premier League to postpone their clash with Watford on Tuesday

The request comes after the Clarets’ league fixture on Saturday against Leicester was called off at Burnley’s request.

An announcement as to whether the game will officially be called off is expected later on Monday. 

‘The Premier League has received a postponement request from Burnley FC relating to their home match against Watford FC, due to be played at 7:30pm on Tuesday 18 January,’ a Premier League statement said.

‘The Premier League Board will meet later today to review the application and inform both clubs and their fans of its decision.’

The match against Watford had already been rearranged, having originally been scheduled to take place on December 15 before the Premier League accepted a request from the Hornets for a postponement.
