Fulham’s Premier League match at Tottenham Hotspur that was scheduled to kick off at 1800 GMT on Wednesday has been called off due to a COVID-19 outbreak at the West London club, Spurs said.

“The Premier League informed us of the decision this afternoon, with Fulham having requested the postponement on the grounds of the number of COVID-19 positive cases among their players and staff,” Spurs said in a statement.

“Details of a new date for the fixture will be confirmed in due course.”

The match is the third in the English top flight to be postponed due to COVID-19 cases after Newcastle United’s trip to Aston Villa earlier this month was called off, as was Monday’s match between Everton and Manchester City.
