Everton's Premier League visit to Aston Villa this forthcoming weekend will take place on Sunday 17 January and kick off at 12pm following a schedule rearrangement.
Carlo Ancelotti's team, who play away at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday, were previously due to meet Villa at 5.30pm on Saturday 16 January.
The game will be screened live by Sky Sports, in line with original broadcasting plans.
Multiple Aston Villa players and staff either tested positive for coronavirus or were placed in isolation following an outbreak at the club last week. As a result, the Premier League has confirmed the fixture rearrangement with Everton.

Everton's away match against Aston Villa, scheduled to be played on Sunday 17 January at 12pm, has been postponed by the Premier League Board.
Following the rescheduling of Villa’s game against Tottenham Hotspur, which was due to be played last night, a significant number of players and staff remain in isolation. As a result, the Premier League Board has agreed to Aston Villa’s request to postpone the match on Sunday.
Newcastle United’s postponed match at Aston Villa, which was due to be played on 4 December 2020, has been rescheduled and will now be played on Saturday 23 January at 8pm, live on Sky Sports.
The Premier League, in consultation with its clubs, has enhanced its COVID-19 protocols, in addition to reimplementing a twice-weekly testing programme as the heath of players and staff remains the priority. The protocols, which strengthen key elements of the existing guidance, came into immediate effect last week.
