Tottenham’s EFL Cup third round tie at Leyton Orient on Tuesday has been thrown into doubt by a number of positive COVID-19 tests among the hosts’ first-team squad.

The EFL announced on Monday that they are awaiting conclusions from discussions between Leyton Orient and Public Health England in order to decide whether the game should take place.

As things stand, however, the tie is ON.

What channel is Leyton Orient vs Spurs on?

If it does go ahead, Spurs will play three times in three different competitions this week. The short trip to Leyton Orient if the first of those matches, and Spurs fans can watch the game on Sky Sports Football or Sky Sports Main Event – kick-off is at 6pm BST.

Possible Spurs starting line-up

Given Tottenham’s busy week, Jose Mourinho has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection for Tuesday’s game.

The Spurs boss has already revealed he will ask Harry Kane to start yet again, despite the striker already having played against Everton, Lokomotiv Plovdiv and Southampton in the space of a week.

Kane is likely to be be joined in the starting line-up by players who have featured less so far this season, such as Dele Alli, Joe Hart and Serge Aurier. New signing Sergio Reguilon is unlikely to start.

  1. Game off no doubt. What a farce. A “deadly disease” with a 97% odd recovery rate, I wonder if the O’s players knew they were even ill til they were told after these wonky PCR tests. Levy will be ecstatic after getting done by Colchester last time, a welcome ommition from the fixture pile up. Such a joke, may as well just cancel the sport if this testing method continues as this should be occuring every fixture list, if it’s an isolated incident questions should be asked especially if ENIC fc get a buy. Why 18 players suddenly positive where it’s happened nowhere else in bulk?
