Antonio Conte’s Tottenham have reportedly been hit with a Covid outbreak within the squad
Antonio Conte’s side have a must-win Europa Conference League game against Rennes on Thursday night before facing Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
There is no doubt preparations for these games will take a hit and should the PCR tests confirm the cases the games themselves could be impacted.
This is not the first bit of trouble the London club have 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 matches.
They cruised to victory over Norwich on Sunday thanks to strikes from Lucas Moura, Davidson Sanchez and Son Heung-min.
It is not yet known who the positives were but they will now undergo PCR tests on Tuesday
