Aston Villa head coach Steven Gerrard will miss the club’s next two Premier League games after testing positive for Covid-19.

Gerrard will not be in the dugout for Boxing Day’s home game at Chelsea or Tuesday’s trip to Leeds.

The club said in a statement: “Aston Villa can confirm that head coach Steven Gerrard will be unable to attend our next two Premier League games with Chelsea and Leeds United as he will go into self-isolation after testing positive for Covid -19. “

Villa’s reunion with Burnley last weekend has been postponed due to the number of positive coronavirus tests in the squad and three Premier League games scheduled for Boxing Day.

A total of 25 Boxing Day matches in English football’s top four divisions have been postponed, with the Covid outbreaks in Luton and Carlisle making their matches against Bristol City and Rochdale the last respectively to be called off. Only 10 EFL matches are expected to take place.
