Tottenham vs Fulham in doubt amid coronavirus outbreak at the club
According to The Athletic, Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League game against Fulham on Wednesday outing might not take place after a number of positive tests at the West London club.
The Premier League confirmed earlier today that there had been a total of 18 new positive tests among players and staff, the highest weekly total since Project Restart.
Manchester City had been hit with an outbreak which led to the postponement of their league game against Everton which was supposed to take place on Tuesday night.
And now, the report claims that a similar case could happen with Tottenham Hotspur’s clash against Fulham. It states that a number of people associated with the Cottagers have tested positive for the virus which has placed major doubt on whether the Premier League encounter will go ahead.
Fulham manager, Scott Parker, was forced into self-isolation this past weekend after a member of his household tested positive for Covid-19. The former Spurs midfielder tested negative though and was cleared to return to the dugout for their trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday.
There has been no official word from either Fulham or Tottenham over the matter, while the Premier League has also not issued any sort of statement on the situation as things stand. More updates are likely to be forthcoming in the next few hours.
