The Fulham Vs Tottenham game has been postponed, after new coronavirus cases were recorded a few hours before kickoff at Fulham.
The Fulham Vs Tottenham game was due to start at 18:00 GMT at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

According to the report by DailyMail, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho showed a video inside the stadium minutes before the announcement of the postponement was made. The video revealed the confusion of himself and his coaching staff as to whether the match had been abandoned.
A Tottenham statement read: ‘We can confirm that our Premier League home fixture against Fulham, scheduled to take place this evening (Wednesday 30 December), has been postponed.
‘The Premier League informed us of the decision this afternoon, with Fulham having requested the postponement on the grounds of the number of COVID-19 positive cases among their players and staff.
‘Everyone at Tottenham Hotspur sends their best wishes to Fulham for a safe and speedy recovery to all those who are affected. Details of a new date for the fixture will be confirmed in due course.’
In a statement of their own, Fulham said:
The Club can confirm that this evening’s away fixture at Tottenham Hotspur has been postponed. This follows a number of the Club’s players and first team staff returning positive results from the most recent Covid-19 tests this week.
‘This decision follows discussions with the Premier League and advice from Public Health England. Those players and staff who tested positive have been self-isolating in line with UK Government and Premier League guidance. We wish the players and staff who tested positive a safe and speedy recovery.’
