Tottenham hit by Covid outbreak with ‘number of players and staff testing positive’ ahead of Christmas season

They will now undergo PCR testing on Tuesday to confirm the results before decisions are made on how to proceed.

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham reportedly hit by a Covid outbreak within the squad

Antonio Conte’s side have a Europa Conference League game against Rennes on Thursday night that he must win before facing Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

There is no doubt that the preparations for these games will be a hit and if the PCR tests confirm the cases, the games themselves could be affected.

This isn’t the first bit of trouble the London club has had with the virus this season, having recorded two positives earlier in the campaign.

Tottenham have found form in recent weeks, winning all of their last three league games.

They rode to victory over Norwich on Sunday thanks to strikes from Lucas Moura, Davidson Sanchez and Son Heung-min.
