Premier League likely to be suspended due to coronavirus outbreak

A suspension of the Premier League season "of some sort" due to the coronavirus outbreak is considered likely, a source has told the PA news agency.

It follows the news that Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta and Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi have contracted the virus.

Three Leicester players are also being tested, while Everton announced on Thursday that the squad was in self-isolation after a player reported symptoms consistent with the virus.

The Premier League is meeting at 10.30 this morning, with clubs set to be represented via videolink.
