Burnley clash with Leicester postponed

Burnley’s home game against Leicester City on Saturday has been postponed.

The Premier League said it accepted Burnley’s request to call the game off as the Clarets did not have enough players to fulfil the fixture.

Premier League rules say a club must play a game if they have 13 outfield players and one goalkeeper available.

Burnley had games against Watford, Aston Villa and Everton postponed in December because of absences.

The game against Watford has been rescheduled to take place on Tuesday, 18 January and that could now be in doubt.
