Tottenham’s final Premier League game of 2020 against Fulham has been postponed after a number of positive COVID-19 tests in the Cottagers camp in recent days.
Doubts emerged on Tuesday evening, although Jose Mourinho was made to wait, uploading a video on Instagram at 2pm in Wednesday – with still great uncertainty about whether the game would go ahead.
And less than three hours before kick-off, Spurs released a statement which confirmed the inevitable which had been requested by Scott Parker’s men, after a number of their players and staff returned a number of positive tests and weren’t going to be able to play.
The postponement does give Mourinho’s players an extra three days break before hosting Leeds United in their opening game the New Year.
And here, we’ve been looking at how the Tottenham faithful have been reacting to the news on Twitter, and you can see the best of those below:
Make them play their U23s or something? It’s not our fault so why are we being punished

Mourinho wants to slap an PL official. Fuming.
Easy 3 points would have been. They should play with their non positive players. It is not Spurs problem they cannot field their best11, look at covid19 like an injury. Lucas+Vinicius also have Covid19???, we play with other players.

This is fast becoming a farce.
With the pandemic getting worse it looks like this season is a bust to be finished on the anticipated date.
The Government now needs to step in now and cancel the whole thing until the pandemic is finished.

Teams can use covid as an excuse now. I'm not saying it's not serious but why on earth big Sam take west brom job in a pandemic if he's so scared? Using covid as an excuse to sort out team
