Tottenham‘s match with Fulham on Wednesday is in doubt following a number of positive coronavirus tests, according to reports. Fulham are one of at least three Premier League clubs to have reported positive cases in the latest round of tests. The Premier League confirmed on Tuesday that there has been 18 positive tests in total – the highest amount since the pandemic began.
Coronavirus has already caused the postponement of one match this week.
Manchester City’s trip to Everton was called off on Monday after City recorded five positive tests.
Meanwhile, Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will not be present at his club’s match against West Ham tonight after a member of his household tested positive for coronavirus.
And now positive test results at Fulham could mean the match at Tottenham cannot go ahead as planned.
The Athletic says a number of people at Fulham have contracted the virus to put the fixture under threat.
Like Hasenhuttl, Fulham manager Scott Parker missed the club’s last match at home to Saints on Boxing Day after a member of his household tested positive.
Parker has undergone a period of self-isolation and returned to the club’s training ground on Monday.
It would be third time coronavirus has caused a Premier League match to be postponed if the London derby cannot go ahead.
Newcastle United’s trip to Aston Villa on December 1 was the first to be called off due to Covid-19 before City’s match at Everton suffered the same fate.
