Tottenham’s opening game against Everton has been postponed until further notice.

A statement taken from the Official Tottenham Hotspur website.

Following ongoing discussions with the necessary authorities regarding this weekend’s Premier League home match against Everton, it has now been confirmed that this fixture will be postponed due to safety concerns relating to infrastructure of the High Road and access to the stadium caused by last Saturday’s riots.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused to supporters due to matters outside of the control of the Club. We shall update fans on when this fixture will be rearranged in due course.

“The very latest situation is that we know that we are going to lose the Tottenham – Everton game,” Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore said.

“In fairness to the police they have done a fantastic job, but they are unable to hand Tottenham High Road back to the council until Friday night and that is late enough to get a safety certificate in time.

“The other nine fixtures are looking positive and by 6pm tonight we should have a clear picture, but at the moment it looks like nine will be on.

“Obviously full credit to the police and we respect their decision and ultimately it will be their decision and we respect their decision and support them, they want these to go ahead as much as we do but obviously it is inevitable that if they can’t go on that we support them.”
