Boxing Day is usually a day filled with festive football, but this year seems to be a little different.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have already seen a number of games canceled as teams tackle outbreaks within their squads.

Liverpool and Leeds saw their match postponed

As it stands, the number of postponed matches stands at 25 in the Premier League and English Football League.

Three Premier League games have already been affected, with Liverpool v Leeds and Wolves v Watford falling victim to the pandemic.

Christmas Eve also saw Burnley’s home clash with Everton postponed.

Tottenham v Crystal Palace is the subject of major doubt, but is as it stands.

In the championship, seven matches are scheduled, including Fulham against Birmingham, Millwall against Swansea, Peterborough against Reading.

In League One, matches include Portsmouth v Oxford, Gillingham v Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday v Burton while several have also been postponed to League Two.

More matches are expected to be added to the roster and with a busy schedule over the winter period, it is likely that other match days could be affected by the latest outbreak.
