Tottenham return to training after Covid outbreak - Leicester match likely to go ahead

Tottenham are back in training ahead of Leicester City clash in the Premier League.

LondonWorld understands that there will be an attempt to reopen the first team training facilities on Wednesday with some of the players who initially tested positive returning negative test results.

The club have also scheduled a pre-match press conference ahead of the game against Leicester, suggesting that attempts are being made to return to normal and get back to playing football matches.

All of this adds up to the Leicester match on Thursday likely to go ahead.

Tottenham have two outstanding Premier League games and one Europa Conference League game against Rennes to rearrange, even if every passing day diminishes the likelihood of the European game to be honoured due to fixture congestion from the English side.

Earlier in the week, there was another scare at Hotspur Way, with some members of the U23 side also testing positive for Covid.

A decision is yet to be made on if there will be the need to close down the U23 training facilities.

A Premier League statement read: “The league has reverted to its emergency measures, and will increase the frequency of both lateral flow and PCR Covid-19 testing of players and staff.

“The Premier League’s Covid-19 emergency measures, which are applicable to all clubs, include protocols such as wearing face coverings while indoors, observing social distancing and limiting treatment time. These are in addition to the more frequent testing.”

A number of training sessions have been disrupted across the Premier League and QPR’s Championship game against Sheffield United was called off on Monday night after a number of positive cases within both teams.
