Arsenal and Chelsea both face WSL postponements due to Covid-19 outbreaks

The Women’s Super League clash between Arsenal and Reading on Sunday has been postponed.

A Covid-19 outbreak and injuries to the Royals squad led the FA to agree to their request to rearrange the game for a later date.

A statement from Reading read: “We apologize for any inconvenience this causes to supporters planning to attend.

“The health, safety and well-being of the players, coaching staff and club staff remain of paramount importance and we wish everyone involved a speedy and full recovery.”

Kelly Chambers’ Reading side have been in fine form heading into the game, winning five and drawing in their last six games to move into the top three.

Meanwhile, first-placed Arsenal dropped points in a shock loss to Birmingham last time out. That left their lead over Chelsea at four points with the Blues holding a game in hand.

Chelsea’s game with Everton this weekend was called off on Friday due to a “significant number” of Covid absences and injuries for the Toffees.

The Blues have not played since December 16, having also seen games with Tottenham and West Ham postponed.
