Tottenham suffer Covid outbreak in squad with 'number of players and staff testing positive' ahead of busy Christmas
TOTTENHAM have been hit with a Covid outbreak within their squad, according to reports.
A number of players and staff members recorded positive lateral flow tests today.
According to Football London, no decisions will be made regarding their upcoming fixtures until all those that tested positive undergo a PCR test tomorrow.
Spurs are scheduled to face Rennes on Thursday in a must-win Europa Conference League clash.
They are then down to face Brighton at the Amex in the Premier League on Sunday.
Antonio Conte's training plans have been thrown into disarray by the positive tests.
Should tomorrow's PCR tests come back positive, confirming the outbreak, Spurs' upcoming fixtures could be hit.
Tottenham did have two positive tests earlier this season.
