The eagerly anticipated Everton vs Man City Premier League clash will no longer take place tonight due to coronavirus concerns.
While two Manchester City players had been confirmed positive before now, reports indicate there are fresh cases within the team and that has led to a postponement in the game billed for the Goodison Park.
With this development, Alex Iwbo and his Everton teammates have to wait till next year before they get back to action.
