In a statement, they confirmed that matches will start on 4 April subject to “conditions at the time”.

COVID-19 has caused a significant impact to football with Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi both having tested positive for the virus (talkSPORT).

The Tottenham players trained as normal on Friday at their Hotspur Way base in preparation for the planned visit of Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday before news broke of the postponement took place.

The Evening Standard have claimed that one employee at Tottenham has been tested after displaying symptoms with the result coming back as negative.

Where possible, employees are being encouraged to work from home in a bid to help limit the spread of the virus at the football club.
