Crystal Palace match against Leicester set to go ahead at King Power Stadium

Leicester are confident their final three home matches of the Premier League season will be “unaffected” despite the city being forced into a second lockdown.

The club has spoken with local authorities, its Safety Advisory Group and the Premier League after the government’s announcement on Monday that Leicester would have stricter measures imposed following a sharp rise in coronavirus cases.

The Foxes, third in the top flight, are due to host Crystal Palace on Saturday and will also welcome Sheffield United and Manchester United as they chase Champions League qualification.

Non-essential shops will be closed from Tuesday after cases in the city accounted for 10 per cent of all nationwide positive tests over the past week.

A Leicester spokesman said: “All parties remain entirely satisfied that, through the continued implementation of our Covid operations plan, the club’s football operations can continue to safely function under existing protocols and, in doing so, there will be no greater risk posed to club personnel, visiting teams or our surrounding communities.

“Consequently, first team training will continue at Belvoir Drive and our forthcoming Premier League fixtures remain unaffected.”
