Spurs vs Fulham game called off just hours before kick-off after spike in Covid cases


Tottenham vs Fulham has been postponed after the Cottagers recorded a number of positive Covid-19 tests on Tuesday.

The game, which was set to take place at 18:00 GMT on Wednesday evening at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, is the second Premier League fixture to be postponed in a week after Manchester City’s game against Everton following “an increase in positive COVID-19 test results” at City.

The Premier League announced on Tuesday that they recorded 18 positive tests last week – the most since the pandemic began – and Fulham are far from the only club to be affected as City, Arsenal and Sheffield United have all confirmed positive cases this week.

Parker confirmed his negative test in his press conference on Tuesday, which would ensure he could return to the training ground at the start of this week after a period of self-isolation and prepare to face Spurs.
