The Premier League match between Leicester and Tottenham this evening has been postponed because of the Covid-19 outbreak at the north London club. Spurs are facing an increasing fixture list after having a third game postponed in a row, with the club having documented a record number of positive coronavirus cases during the most recent round of testing.

Decision on Game Postpone

The Premier League announced the decision on Thursday, citing ” an increase in positive Covid-19 cases within Leicester’s squad” on Thursday.”

In a statement, the Premier League said: “In light of the new information, Leicester applied [on Thursday] for the fixture to be called off due to an ongoing outbreak within the squad, which has resulted in more players and staff testing positive for Covid-19 today.”

It also added: “This has left the club with an insufficient number of players available to fulfill the game.”

Third Game Canceled due to Covid-19

Earlier on Wednesday, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers revealed that an early request to postpone the match had been denied and that the club expects to be missing nine players due to Covid-related concerns and injuries. To aid in the containment of the outbreak, Leicester’s training ground has been shuttered for 48 hours. On Sunday, they go to Everton for their next match.

A Leicester statement said: “Given the increase in positive tests among first-team personnel, first-team operations at Seagrave will now be closed for 48 hours, serving as a circuit breaker to help reduce the risk of further infection,” a Leicester statement said.

“First team players and staff will undergo a subsequent round of testing on Saturday,” it added.

Several top-flight teams are dealing with Covid-19 instances at the moment, with Manchester United’s trip to Brentford and Watford’s match against Burnley the only two Premier League games canceled over the midweek period. United’s Saturday match against Brighton is also in jeopardy, with the Red Devils keeping the Premier League informed of their predicament.
