Quoted by Sky Sports, Brentford manager Thomas Frank said: "We think we should postpone the full round of Premier League games this weekend.
"COVID cases are going through the roof at all Premier League clubs, everyone is dealing with it and having problems.
"To postpone this round and also the Carabao Cup round would give everyone a week at least, or four or five days to clean and do everything at the training ground so everything is clean and you break the chain."
Frank added: "We fully respect that we want to play and it is important football keeps going, and this way we can make sure Boxing Day keeps going, I'm 100 per cent sure of that.
"This Omicron variant is running like wildfire around the world and I think we need to do all we can to protect and avoid it. I think we can do a lot by closing down training grounds for three, four or five days, and then we can go again."
Brentford's clash with Manchester United was cancelled as both clubs deal with outbreaks within their respective camps. There are 13 positive cases at Brentford so far, while the Red Devils reportedly have over 19 cases.
