Why are there no Premier League games on this weekend and when does football return?

FOLLOWING a busy Christmas, Premier League clubs are finally getting a break from stresses of competitive football. Not only was the festive period jam-packed, but clubs suffered Covid-19 outbreaks, with teams being stretched beyond their limits.

Players are becoming more worn and tired, while managers continue to utilise their squads in the best way they can. But now Premier League sides can rest easy, as they embark on a mini break to recuperate ahead o the rest of the season. The only losers in this situation are the fans, who are already counting the days down for football's return.

Why are there no Premier League games this weekend?

To allow teams to rest and rejuvenate themselves ahead of a busy final third of the season, players will get this coming weekend off. There will be no Premier League games on Saturday, January 29 or on Sunday, January 30. But there's still one game which will go ahead before the full return to fixtures on February 8.
