its becoming a tactic to avoid playing with key players out im thinking

Yep and it shouldn't be allowed. Teams are using Covid as an excuse for their poor squad management. Unless it is provable with independent test results that they have Covid, teams should have to fulfil the fixtures even if that means playing the youth players.

Arsenal requesting their game be cancelled on Sunday. It’s getting ridiculous this.
Nonsense. Hope the premier league tell them to do one. They shouldn't be allowed to include AFCON and injuries. Any postponements must be based solely on a covid outbreak.

Depends on the number of false negatives I would imagine but I can't see any team being devious enough to use that tactic :}

Starting to feel like teams are exploiting this now, waiting for the right players to become available.

I like the AFCON version of the rule tbh; if you can get 11 players on the pitch, you play the game.

This is a fair point too:
