Tottenham are requesting that the Brighton match be postponed during the outbreak of covid-19

1

Tottenham will request that their Premier League meeting with Brighton on Sunday be postponed, following a significant Covid-19 outburst at the club.

News of Spurs’ situation broke only on Monday, with reports of as many as six players testing positive for coronavirus via side-flow tests.

Lilywhites had hoped that further PCR tests could excuse some of the affected team members from having to isolate themselves, but according to Dan Kilpatrick, the situation has since “worsened”.

The number of positive tests is now double-digit, which means that Antonio Conte lacks alternatives for the infamous hectic party period.

Although the Spurs Europa Conference League meeting with Rennes on Thursday will not be affected – the UEFA directives say that a match must be played if a team has 13 players available – the club is trying to get its Premier League match against the Seagulls pushed back.

The league’s board will make a decision on the matter immediately and Conte is expected to give an update at a press conference at 14.00.

The Spurs are already on schedule after their recent trip to Burnley was postponed due to terrible weather.

Anyone who tested positive for Covid-19 would need to isolate themselves for at least ten days. The timing could not be worse for Spurs when they face Leicester City next Thursday, just four days after taking on Brighton.

Tottenham’s preparations for their huge match against Liverpool on Sunday 19 December will also be affected.
