The WSL fixture between West Ham and Manchester United scheduled for Sunday evening has been postponed due to suspected positive Covid-19 cases in the Hammers squad.

The decision was mutually reached by both clubs in consultation with the FA. A new date for the rearranged fixture will be confirmed in due course.

The game had been selected for a live television broadcast by Sky Sports, but the postponement means that both West Ham and Manchester United will have to wait a little longer to get back into action following the WSL’s annual winter break.

The Hammers haven’t played in almost a month as their last scheduled game was one of three that were postponed in the final round of WSL fixtures before Christmas.

By the time they face Tottenham in their next game on 16 January - assuming it will be possible for it go ahead - they won’t have played for five weeks.

United were in action the week before Christmas, winning 5-0 against Aston Villa. Their next game now will seem them take on Birmingham at home on 15 January.
