According to PA News Agency, Tottenham Hotspur’s clash against Fulham could be postponed after several positive COVID tests at Fulham.
There have been 18 positive tests registered across the Premier League this week, the highest number since testing began several months ago (Sky Sports).
Manchester City’s clash against Everton, which was scheduled to take place on Monday, had to be postponed as a result of multiple positive tests in the City camp.
It now appears that Tottenham’s clash on Wednesday may not go ahead on the back of positive test results within the Cottagers’ camp.
Fulham boss Scott Parker, who could not take charge of his side’s clash against Southampton on Boxing Day after a member of his household tested positive for COVID-19, has tested negative twice and cleared for the match (Evening Standard).
However, the game is now in doubt due to other positive tests in the club’s camp.
The report claims that a decision will be made on whether the game will go ahead depending on the results of the players and staff at Craven Cottage who are yet to receive their results.
