The city had a series of positive tests for the new coronovirus (Kovid-19) after confirming four diagnoses last week, including striker Gabriel Jesus and defender Kyle Walker. The English League Committee agreed to resume the game as a precaution as City submitted the request in view of the most recent round of examinations.

“The decision was made with the health of the players and staff as a priority,” the league said. “The Premier League continues to have full confidence in its protocol and rules, and the way all clubs are implementing them.”

The city has decided to close its senior team’s training facility indefinitely, and the squad must pass the test before making any decision on resuming training.

The team said in a statement, “All positive cases involving players and officials will observe a period of self-segregation as per the protocols of the Premier League and the UK government.”

The postponement is the second of this season – an outbreak at Newcastle United forced the league to quell the dispute over the Aston Villa area this month. City, who sit sixth in the table, are due to travel to face Chelsea on Sunday.
