Premier League clubs will hold crunch talks on Monday amid the ongoing issues inflicted by coronavirus.
Six out of ten Premier League games this weekend were postponed and clubs need to decide whether to suspend the next round of games on Boxing Day as a Covid circuit-breaker.
Some clubs feel they should carry on playing where possible because there is no guarantee the situation will improve if they stop. Other clubs feel the integrity of the competition is being threatened and the next round of games should be called off.
Most clubs are due to play three times between Boxing Day and January 2, and there are fears more games will be postponed because of Covid cases.
There is also a real fear among clubs that they will have to go back soon to playing games without fans.
