The EFL are also ready to follow suit after they called a crisis summit for their clubs as the coronavirus sent football into meltdown.

One director told Mirror Sport that clubs want games postponed and think it is inevitable that will happen this morning with a video meeting called for all Premier League clubs at 10.30am.

It comes after the virus swept through football this week as Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi both tested positive to leave those clubs having to put their first team in self isolation and shut their training grounds. At least three other clubs have been affected by the coronavirus with Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers revealing three players have been showing symptoms.

Watford have also been affected as revealed in Mirror Sport with players told not to report to the training ground but then a training session at a local health club was cancelled amid fears of infection. The likely outcome is:
