Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Sunday’s match against Brighton and Hove Albion has been postponed.

A Premier League Board meeting was held earlier this afternoon where the decision was made to not proceed with the match at the Amex Stadium due to the Covid-19 outbreak within the ranks of the North London club.

Medical advisors had provided guidance following the situation that Spurs find themselves in, where the focal point was centered on the health of players and staff.

Tottenham’s Europa Conference League fixture against Rennes which was scheduled to take place this evening was called off by UEFA this morning.

Spurs, have also closed the first-team area of their training centre following medical guidance.

Antonio Conte revealed at Wednesday’s press conference that eight first team players and five members of the coaching staff had returned positive tests for the virus (Football.London).

The subsequent Premier League fixture away to Leicester City next Thursday could also be affected, according to The Guardian.

It is the right decision for the Premier League to decide to postpone the match against Brighton, however, it seems slightly odd that they also did not shelve next Thursday’s fixture at Leicester.
