The move to postpone City’s trip was made on medical advice as a precautionary measure. Similarly, Newcastle’s recent match against Aston Villa did not take place after five players tested positive earlier this month.
City were given the Covid all clear with no new cases after round of emergency testing on Wednesday, allowing them to resume training ahead of Sunday’s showdown with Chelsea.
Pep Guardiola’s squad reported to the City Football Academy on Tuesday for tests after five players and at least two staff members contracted the virus.
