Some Premier League clubs have been ravaged by coronavirus infections and this has seen several matches in the competition postponed.
Clubs like Tottenham have more than a game in hand on the teams above them and there had been suggestions that the league should be paused for a few weeks.
Clubs in the competition met today to determine the next step to take and the BBC reports they have decided to keep playing.
The festive period is packed full with matches as usual and some games could have been suspended so clubs with covid outbreaks can recover and rejoin the competition.
However, the clubs believe they should continue. They also agreed that a club can fulfil its fixture if they have up to 13 fit players and a goalkeeper.
Just Arsenal Opinion
The current pandemic is already causing problems for the clubs in it and the organisers would struggle if more matches are postponed.
They haven’t rescheduled some matches that have been called off and more cancellations may occur, but halting the whole league isn’t the best idea.
There is no guarantee that the covid cases would not go up if the league is suspended because the players will keep interacting with other members of the public.
