On Thursday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said Premier League matches will not yet be cancelled despite the coronavirus epidemic after a COBRA meeting was held at Downing Street.

However, after late Thursday night news broke that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, have been diagnosed with coronavirus, the Premier League will now go on an emergency meeting to discuss the issue, with talks revealing that the Premier League season might be suspended until further notice.

The Premier League has revealed in a statement, thus: “In light of Arsenal’s announcement tonight confirming that their first-team coach Mikel Arteta has tested positive for COVID-19, the Premier League will convene an emergency club meeting on Friday morning regarding future fixtures. 

“The Premier League will make no further comment until after that meeting.”
