Steven Gerrard to miss Villa’s next two Premier League matches after positive COVID test

Villa
boss
Gerrard
will
not
be
able
to
sit
in
the
dugout
for
the
home
game
against
Chelsea
on
Sunday
or
Tuesday’s
trip
to
Leeds
United.

A
club
statement
on
Twitter
read:
“Aston
Villa
can
confirm
head
coach
Steven
Gerrard
will
be
unable
to
attend
our
next
two
Premier
League
matches
with
Chelsea
and
Leeds
United
as
he
will
be
isolating
after
testing
positive
for
COVID-19.”

The
schedule
in
England’s
football
pyramid
has
been
ravaged
by
a
spate
of
coronavirus
infections
affecting
clubs
throughout
the
tiers.

Villa’s
clash
with
the
Blues
is
one
of
six
surviving
top-flight
fixtures
for
the
traditionally
stacked
Boxing
Day
schedule,
though
their
previous
encounter
with
Burnley
was
postponed
due
to
high
infection
rates
among
the
squad.

Their
trip
to
Elland
Road
is
already
under
threat
with
Leeds
seeing
their
match
with
Liverpool
called
off
due
to
an
outbreak
of
COVID
coinciding
with
a
mounting
injury
crisis.
