According to Matt Law of The Telegraph, Tottenham’s Premier League trip to Leicester has been postponed due to an ongoing outbreak of COVID-19. 

Spurs have had their last two fixtures – against Rennes and Brighton respectively – called off due to Antonio Conte’s side suffering a large outbreak of the virus which ripped through the squad over the last week. 

Hosts Leicester are also said to be experiencing a number of COVID cases and, as a result, Thursday’s encounter at the King Power Stadium is set to be postponed. 

Both clubs initially asked for the Premier League to call the fixture off but saw their appeals rejected by officials to avoid a backlog of games. 

However, Leicester allegedly submitted another request to postpone the match this morning after receiving more positive tests in Brendan Rodgers’ squad. 

Reports have also claimed Tottenham already travelled to Leicester and are currently in a hotel and had been waiting for their return to action this evening.  

Spurs Web Opinion:

The right call has been made but at the wrong time. This should have been decided days ago before away fans travelled, while also potentially leaving Spurs with a free mid-week slot to play Rennes.
