Tottenham Hotspur’s preparations on Friday ahead of today’s planned Premier League match against Manchester United ground to a halt following the news that the competition has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Premier League revealed that following a meeting of the clubs that it was unanimously decided to suspend the Premier League with the intention of returning on April 4th
The delay meant that the upcoming fixtures against both Manchester United and West Ham will have to be rescheduled until a later date.
There is no guarantee that the Premier League will resume on April 4th given the current situation with the virus, a thought which is shared by Brighton’s chief executive Paul Barber (BBC).
Spurs star striker Harry Kane has not taken to the field since New Year’s Day when he tore his hamstring during the loss against Southampton.
The 26-year-old was seen back on the training field at Hotspur Way last week when he shared footage of himself on Twitter taking part in some rehabilitation drills.
Football Insider claim that Kane is progressing well with his return with the Premier League suspension having given him the boost that he could still play his part in the remainder of the campaign whilst also stating that he could possibly take to the field for the next fixture.
Spurs have struggled in front of goal since the England captain has been on the treatment table and is likely to learn on Thursday how much of a role he could play in the run-in when Premier League clubs meet at an emergency meeting to decide the fate of the campaign (ESPN).
