Shortly after 2pm, Spurs manager Jose Mourinho took to Instagram to complain: “Game at 6pm. . . We still don’t know if we’re playing. Best league in the world. ”

Fulham is believed to have had a number of positive results for Covid-19 on Tuesday. Clubs in Tier 4 areas are now required to run tests twice a week to stop the growing number of infections across the country.

Cottagers are believed to have received more positive test results on Wednesday, prompting the Premier League board to call at the eleventh hour to postpone the game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
