Fulham vs Tottenham becomes 2nd game postponed this week

Fulham's Premier League match at Tottenham on Wednesday has become the 2nd game in a week to be called off due to new coronavirus cases.

The game was due to start at 6pm at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Fulham requested for the fixture to be postponed and the decision was confirmed three hours before kick-off.

On Tuesday, the latest round of Premier League Covid-19 testing found 18 people had the virus - the highest figure recorded in the testing programme.

A Tottenham statement said: "The Premier League informed us of the decision this [Wednesday] afternoon, with Fulham having requested the postponement on the grounds of the number of Covid-19 positive cases among their players and staff.

"Everyone at Tottenham Hotspur sends their best wishes to Fulham for a safe and speedy recovery to all those who are affected."

On Monday, Manchester City's Premier League match at Everton was postponed four hours before kick-off at Goodison Park because of an outbreak of coronavirus at the club.

Everton said they would request "full disclosure" of the information City provided to the Premier League that led to the postponement.

Newcastle United's match at Aston Villa, scheduled for 4 December, was postponed following a "significant increase" in cases at the Magpies' training ground.
