There has been a mixed reaction from the Tottenham fans on social media after several journalists revealed that the club’s clash against Fulham this evening has been postponed in light of COVID cases.
Reports first emerged yesterday that the game may not go ahead due to the positive tests. However, the Premier League did not provide any confirmation on the matter, much to Jose Mourinho’s displeasure.
Multiple journalists revealed on social media that the game had indeed been called off due to the positive tests at Fulham which was later confirmed by Tottenham.
Some Spurs fans believe that the right decision has been reached and suggested that this could be a positive as the players would get a few days of extra rest.
However, others worried that the postponement of the match could lead to fixture congestion in the coming weeks and months, especially since Tottenham are also set to begin their FA Cup campaign next month.
Timing of it is disappointing.

And yet pointless international friendlies will still happen before the end of the season.
Not sure where this game gets fitted in
City and Villa have to fit 2 games in

Obviously hope all of the affected players are okay. That said:
Con: Won’t be able to watch Tottenham Hotpur play tonight.

Spurs Web Opinion
It is inexcusable for the Premier League to have delayed the announcement until just hours before kick-off. I personally do not think this is a positive for us as three points this evening would have taken us back into the top four and given everyone a boost heading into the new year.
