The match is scheduled to kick off at 3 pm at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, however further positive Covid-19 cases within the Palace ranks had seen Football London question whether the game would actualy go ahead.

Three top flight fixtures between Burnley vs Everton, Liverpool vs Leeds and Wolves vs Watford had already been called off as a result of the virus (talkSPORT).
