Tottenham Struck By Covid Outbreak As ‘Six First-Team Players And Two Staff Test Positive

Posted by

Spurs have been hit by a Covid epidemic in their team, which has thrown their plans into disarray.

According to Football.London, up to six first-team players and two members of the coaching staff had positive lateral flow tests on Monday.

They’ll have PCR tests on Tuesday to confirm the results before making any judgments about what to do next. It is still unknown which players or staff members have tested positive for the virus.

Should the PCR tests also come back positive, Spurs may consider reaching out to the Premier League to have this Sunday’s trip to Brighton postponed, according to The Telegraph.

Postponing the Brighton game would be far from ideal, given how Spurs already have a game in hand after their trip to face Burnley was called off hours before kick-off due to heavy snow last month.

The outbreak comes at a horrid time for Spurs, who have a must-win Europa Conference League game against Rennes on Thursday night before their trip to the Amex Stadium at the weekend.
