Tottenham’s match against Brighton on Sunday has been postponed by the Premier League following the outbreak of Covid-19 at the north London club.
Thirteen players and staff have been reported to have tested positive for the coronavirus, leading to Thursday night’s Europa Conference League match against French club Rennes being postponed. And the Premier League has now followed suit after Spurs made Sunday’s game request to play at some point later in the season.
A statement from Spurs read: “The Premier League leadership has decided to postpone the match in accordance with the guidance of medical advisors, with the health of players and staff a priority. The match schedule will be rescheduled in due time. The club has requested that the match be rescheduled following a significant number of positive COVID-19 cases among the players and staff involved.
“As with our other affected matches, with Stade Rennais in the Europa Conference League, we will update supporters with further information as it becomes available. We would like to apologize to everyone at Stade Rennais and Brighton & Hove Albion, as well as their supporters and ours, for any inconvenience caused. ”
