The Premier League could change its guidelines for postponing matches during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic following controversy over some called-off games this season.

"The Premier League is consulting with our clubs regarding COVID-19 postponement rules and guidance in light of the changing national picture and the falling number of cases within our squads," the Premier League said in a statement released Wednesday, according to The Athletic's Dan Sheldon and Matt Slater.

"The league's current guidance was amended in December following the emergence of the new Omicron variant, and we continue to monitor the ongoing effects of the virus and will update our guidance accordingly."

England's top flight intends to call a meeting between its clubs to discuss potential changes after the upcoming weekend's fixtures, Sheldon and Slater report. The meeting would coincide with the start of a winter break, with clubs not returning to league action until Feb. 8.
