Tottenham and Fulham's Premier League fixture, that was due to take place on Wednesday evening, has been postponed. 

The announcement, which was expected, comes after an outbreak of Covid-19 at Fulham.

It comes just two days after Everton and Manchester City's game at Goodison Park on Monday was postponed due to a number of cases among the City squad.

A statement from the Premier League on Wednesday afternoon in relation to the postponement said:

The match between Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham, due to be played at 18:00 GMT this evening, has been postponed following a Premier League Board meeting this afternoon.

Fulham lodged a request with the Premier League Board to rearrange the fixture following a significant rise in positive COVID-19 cases, as well as a number of players showing symptoms today.

The Premier League Board has consulted its medical advisors and the decision to postpone the game has been taken as a precaution and with the health of players and staff as the priority. The group will now be retested immediately.

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.
