Tottenham’s matches against Manchester United and West Ham United have been postponed by the Premier League because of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, it has been confirmed.
Just hours after it was revealed Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi – among other unnamed staff at top-flight outfits – had tested positive for the coronavirus, the Premier League met with clubs and came to a joint decision with the FA, the EFL and the WSL to postpone matches until April 4th – read the statement here.
The Premier League is the only competition Spurs are still in, which means the Londoners will see just two games called off. The home matches against Man Utd and West Ham would have given Jose Mourinho’s side the chance to close the gap on the top four – but some things are far more important.
It is unclear whether further games will be postponed, but the Premier League has confirmed they will aim to reschedule those matches despite speculation of the entire campaign being void.
At present, Tottenham’s next game is scheduled to take place against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on April 4th.
