Report – How the coronavirus outbreak affects Tottenham Hotspur

The effect of coronavirus break on Tottenham Hotspur

The Premier League has decided to suspend all football matches until the fourth of April at the earliest. This decision has been taken following the coronavirus pandemic gripping the world.

Although it was initially announced that the matches will go ahead, as usual, the decision was taken following developments among a number of club personnel-both staff and players. Brendan Rodgers confirmed that a number of his players showed symptoms while Everton confirmed that their players and staff will be self-isolating.

The tipping point came when Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Chelsea prospect Callum Hudson-Odoi were both diagnosed with the virus. They have now been placed under isolation.

Tottenham Hotspur will now have time to bring at least a couple of players back from injury

What now?

According to Football.London, the Premier League matches against Manchester United and West Ham United will be rescheduled to a later date. It is not yet clear if the reschedule will involve an extension to the Premier League season. The task will be made easier if the European Championships are postponed.

A decision is likely to be taken when UEFA meets on Tuesday. It is being said that the Euros are likely to be postponed to next year. This will allow the leagues to play later into the summer. According to the report, scrapping the league at this stage would seem unlikely due to the many legal issues that would present.

Tottenham players trained as usual, anticipating the match against Manchester United to go ahead. The club’s next course of action is yet to be decided. If all goes well, Spurs will return to action against Sheffield United on April 4. However, it is possible that the date could be pushed forward if the situation worsens.

The peak of the Coronavirus is reportedly expected to come in April in the UK. Even if a reschedule goes forward, it will affect a number of commitments of many clubs that could get very messy.

In short, no one is certain as to what will happen next and it remains to be seen where we are on the 4th of April. At the very least, it will give the likes of Moussa Sissoko and Harry Kane time to recover. Their return will aid our quest to finish in the top four.

Let’s hope that Mikel Arteta, Hudson-Odoi and everyone else inflicted by the virus recover soon.
