Following a rescheduling in the fixtures, Tottenham will not face Aston Villa, but London rivals Fulham. The side will be looking to keep the momentum running this Wednesday at Tottenham Stadium with a kickoff at 11:15 pm.
The Lillywhite’s clash earlier this week had to be postponed after a coronavirus outbreak at the camp. Fulham will have to play a game scheduled to take place two weeks ahead.
The Premier League stated that the week’s testing results in 31 new positive cases of coronavirus. Many people are pushing for a halt in the Premier League with the rising cases. However, it seems it is all systems go for now, especially for Tottenham.
It might be far from both managers’ ideal expectations, with Jose Mourinho having a chance to place and make it four wins in a row. Spurs recorded three straight wins without conceding in three different competitions.
Their successive run lands them a spot in the EFL Cup final, the fourth round of FA Cup, and a climb to fourth in the Premier League. All focus remains on the top flight with 29 points from 16 matches.
Moreover, Fulham becomes victorious in their FA Cup third tie, albeit being pushed to extra time by West London rivals Queen Park Rangers at Loftus Road. Scott Parker’s men are currently unbeaten in five matches in all competitions.
