Some fans react as Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur stands postponed
The match between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur has been postponed by the Premier League just hours before the kick-off. It is the third match in a row that got rescheduled for Spurs due to the ongoing Covid situation at the club.
The decision was made by the Premier League Board because of the latest setback inside the Leicester camp. New positive cases were detected, which resulted in an insufficient number of players being available for the Foxes to field.
Earlier, both clubs had their requests for a postponement rejected by the governing body. However, the current situation had forced their hands to make this decision just before the game was set to happen.
The league board has also apologised to the supporters who would suffer inconvenience due to the last-minute change. They mentioned how they consider each match on a case by case basis, which resulted in the decision being made.
It remains to be seen whether this would facilitate an opportunity for the North London club to play their match against Stade Rennes. They were struggling to find a date before the deadline and, this could have opened up an opportunity potentially.
However, nothing can be stated for sure at the moment as it requires time to set things up, and the match against Liverpool is set to happen on Sunday.
Here are how the Spurs fans reacted to the news regarding the postponement of the Leicester vs Tottenham clash:
