While in Great Britain the alarm about the increase for Covid infections is growing every day, the Premier League continues its journey, and today a few games have been played.
But the number of positives also concerns football, and gives no respite, to the point that the leaders of English football would be considering the possibility of stopping for two weeks in January.
Meanwhile, the league is letting it know that things are going ahead, even if Tottenham-Fulham, scheduled for tomorrow, is in doubt for an outbreak among the Cottagers, and yesterday the match between Everton and Manchester City was postponed, again due to Covid.
In today's games, Arsenal won 1-0 in Brighton thanks to a goal from Lacazette, who entered the field a few seconds earlier. The 5-0 success of Leeds of 'Loco' Bielsa stands out on the pitch of West Bromwich which in the previous round had drawn at Anfield with Liverpool. Burnley beat Sheffield United 1-0, while Southampton and West Ham ended without goals.
