The Premier League have confirmed the rearranged dates for three fixtures that were postponed due to Covid-19 outbreaks.

The Omicron variant of coronavirus has wreaked havoc with the top-flight schedule in England with nearly 20 games being temporarily cancelled.

Although the fate of many of these matches remains uncertain, the Premier League did provide some clarity on New Years' Eve, announcing new dates for Southampton vs Brentford, Everton vs Leicester and West Ham vs Norwich City.

The former, originally set to be played on Saturday 18 December will now be taking place on Tuesday 11 January. Saints will be hoping to continue their recent good form while Brentford will be looking to secure a rare away victory.

Everton vs Leicester, originally scheduled for Sunday 19 December, has been pushed back too. It will also now take place on Tuesday 11 January.

Lastly, West Ham and Norwich have also learned that their meeting will now take place on Wednesday 12 January.

The Premier League announced the new dates alongside the television selections for the last two gameweeks in February.
