Leicester v Tottenham: Premier League match postponed due to "insufficient numbers" of Foxes players

Published: 17:00, 16 December 2021

Leicester City’s Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur initially scheduled for Thursday at 7:30pm (UK time) has been postponed.

A statement released on Leicester’s website read: “Leicester City can confirm that the Premier League Board has decided to postpone Thursday night’s fixture against Tottenham Hotspur.

“The decision was taken with guidance from medical advisors after the club resubmitted its application for postponement after confirmation this morning (Thursday) of further positive tests for COVID-19 within the first team squad. As a result, the club has an insufficient number of first team players available to fulfil the match.

“Given the increase in positive tests among first team personnel, first team operations at Seagrave will now be closed for 48 hours, serving as a circuit breaker to help reduce the risk of further infection. First team players and staff will undergo a subsequent round of testing on Saturday.

“The club regrets the inconvenience caused to Tottenham Hotspur and both sets of supporters by Thursday night’s postponement.”

Leicester pre-match news

Leicester are struggling for consistency in the Premier League right now, winning just two of their past six matches. At the weekend, they beat Newcastle United 4-0 to bounce back from the disappointment of dropping out of the Europa League into the Conference League and they’ll be hoping to have more luck this Thursday than they have in the past. They will also be looking to record three consecutive home Premier League wins for the first time since December 2019.

Tottenham pre-match news

Tottenham haven’t played in the Premier League for almost 10 days and have two games in hand on a lot of the teams around them, but they are still just four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal. Antonio Conte has overseen an excellent return to form at Tottenham and prior to their enforced break the North London club had won three straight games, beating Leeds, Brentford and Norwich.
