West Ham say their clash with Wolves on Sunday is scheduled to go ahead as planned, although the club are monitoring the situation.

Last Saturday the Hammers played Arsenal, who have since had their match at Manchester City postponed due to coronavirus fears.

Wolves, meanwhile, are travelling to Greece to play Olympiacos after their appeal to have the Europa League match postponed was turned down by UEFA.

It will be played behind closed doors, again due to coronavirus concerns.

A statement from West Ham read: ‘West Ham United continues to closely monitor the situation regarding the coronavirus outbreak.

‘After discussions with the Premier League and our medical team, Sunday’s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers at London Stadium is scheduled to go ahead as planned.

‘The club will keep supporters updated should the situation change.’
