Leicester vs Tottenham: Premier League fixture postponed following Covid-19 outbreak | Football News

Tottenham’s Premier League match against Leicester on Thursday has been postponed due to Covid-19 outbreaks, Sky Sports News has been told.

It is the third consecutive postponement involving Tottenham, after their Europa Conference League match against Rennes and last weekend’s Premier League game against Brighton were also called off.

Those postponements came after a total of eight players and five members of staff tested positive at the north London club had tested positive for Covid-19.

Leicester are also dealing with a coronavirus outbreak, with manager Brendan Rodgers having said on Wednesday that he was “disappointed” the Premier League had rejected a request from the Foxes for the fixture to be postponed.
