FA Women's Super League closed-out 2020 with three postponed matches

December 21, 2020 By Juan Aguerrevere
Three FA WSL Matchday 10 fixtures – West Ham-Aston Villa, Chelsea-Tottenham, Birmingham City-Manchester City – set to be played on Sunday were postponed for different reasons, mirroring the vast amount of rescheduling done in the 2019-20 season.

Match postponements in the 2019-20 FA Women's Super League season became the norm as dozens of fixtures were rescheduled, mostly due to poor pitch conditions. Similarly, the last FA Women's Super League Matchday of the year was interrupted by a slew of inconveniences.

First, a small number of COVID-19 positive cases struck West Ham United's squad, forcing its home game against Aston Villa scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 20, at 9 a.m. ET to be postponed. Unfortunately for the Villains, this is the third that they have had games postponed this season. In October, Villa had a small wave of positive results before its games against Bristol City and Chelsea. The Claret and Blue defeated the Robins in their rescheduled game on Wednesday, Dec. 9. The one against Chelsea will be played on Jan. 27, 2020, which is also a Wednesday. It is safe to say that the postponed game against West Ham will be played on a Wednesday in February.

In a similar matter, the game between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, which was also scheduled to be played on Sunday at 9 a.m. ET, was postponed after several positive COVID-19 positive tests within Chelsea's squad arose before the game. The news arrived at the same time as London entered an emergency lockdown after reports of a new version of the virus that is believed to be 70 percent more transmissible surfaced on news outlets. A statement on Chelsea's website indicated that the match would be rescheduled at a later date. As a result, Tottenham's 3-1 win over Aston Villa marked USWNT star Alex Morgan last game in England after four games played and two goals, both that came from the penalty spot.

Lastly, Birmingham City's home game against Manchester City was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. The rearranged date for the game that was supposed to be played at Stadium at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday will be communicated in due course.

The league will resume on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2021, with Matchday 11. This is what the table will be looking like until then.
