In a statement from the Premier League, it said, “The decision to postpone the game has been taken as a precaution, and with the health of players and staff as the priority. With low numbers of positive tests across the overwhelming majority of clubs, the Premier League continues to have full confidence in its COVID-19 protocols and being able to continue to play our fixtures as scheduled. The league wishes those with COVID-19 a safe and speedy recovery and will rearrange the postponed fixture between Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham in due course”.
So far this week, up until Tuesday, December 29, there have been 18 positive cases of the virus revealed, after tests carried out across the Premier League clubs and staff.
