Southampton's Premier League fixture against Brentford, due to take place on Saturday, has been postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak among the opposition's squad.

A statement issued by the Premier League this evening reads as follows:

"It is with regret that the Premier League Board has postponed a further four matches due to be played this weekend.

The affected fixtures are:

Southampton FC v Brentford FC Saturday, 18 December, at 3pm
Watford FC v Crystal Palace FC Saturday, 18 December, at 3pm
West Ham United v Norwich City Saturday, 18 December, at 3pm
Everton FC v Leicester City FC Sunday, 19 December, at 12 noon

The Board has agreed to postpone the matches after assessing individual club requests this evening. Brentford FC have an ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. This has resulted in their training ground being closed which means they are unable to prepare for Saturday’s game."

At this time, the club has no further knowledge of when this fixture is likely to take place, but will communicate to fans as soon as any new information is available.
