Leicester City v Tottenham postponed due to Covid-19

Tottenham’s match against Leicester on Thursday has been postponed due to Covid-19 outbreaks according to reports.

It is the third consecutive postponement involving Tottenham.

Others were their Europa Conference League match against Rennes and last weekend’s Premier League game against Brighton were also called off.

Those postponements came after a total of eight players.

And also five members of staff tested positive at the north London club had tested positive for Covid-19.

Leicester are also dealing with a coronavirus outbreak.

Their manager Brendan Rodgers said on Wednesday that he was disappointed.

It was after the Premier League had rejected a request from the Foxes for the fixture to be postponed.

The postponement comes hours after Brentford head coach Thomas Frank called on the Premier League to suspend this weekend’s round of fixtures, with several top-flight clubs struggling to contain Covid-19 outbreaks.

Manchester United’s trip to Brentford on Tuesday and Watford’s visit to Burnley are the other Premier League games that have so far been called off this week.

Chelsea are due to face Everton on Thursday evening, while Liverpool are set to host Newcastle in the two remaining matches in this round of Premier League fixtures.
