Patrick Vieira will miss Crystal Palace’s match against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday after testing positive for coronavirus.

The club announced the statement less than three hours before kick-off at 15:00 GMT, adding that assistant manager Osian Roberts would take over as manager.

Vieira claimed the team had “a couple of cases” of Covid-19 on Friday.

The Premier League is said to have turned down Palace’s plea to postpone Sunday’s match.

“We can confirm that Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira is self-isolating following a positive Covid-19 test, and will not be on the touchline for today’s match against Spurs,” the club announced.
