Thursday’s Premier League clash between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur is set to be postponed due to further coronavirus cases in the home side’s squad, according to various reports.
Leicester had previously had a request turned down by the Premier League to call off the contest due to coronavirus cases in the camp, with Foxes head coach Brendan Rodgers facing being without a number of key players for the contest at the King Power Stadium.
However, various reports have now claimed that the contest will be postponed, with football.london claiming that Leicester have returned further positive tests.
Spurs are allegedly currently in Leicester in a hotel, with the players ready to travel to the King Power Stadium in a few hours to prepare for the contest.
Chelsea‘s Premier League clash with Everton, also scheduled for Thursday, is said to be in doubt, meanwhile, due to coronavirus cases in the home team’s squad.
Manchester United, Brentford, Brighton & Hove Albion and Watford are among the Premier League clubs to recently have COVID-19 outbreaks in their squad.
Meanwhile, Spurs have already seen their last two games against Rennes and Brighton postponed due to an outbreak at the club.
