The Premier League has ruled out ‘cooling off’ or ‘circuit’ talks in January, although Tottenham vs Fulham are the second game this week to be postponed due to an outbreak.

The Premier League board’s decision followed the postponement of Manchester City’s Everton match on Monday following an outburst at the Etihad Stadium club, although Burnley vs Sheffield United continued, although “there were” lovers “of Blades players and a dozen” twelve “staff members tested.

As the coronavirus infection is on the rise across the country, there have been calls breaking two Premier League weeks to allow clubs to emerge.

In a statement confirming the postponement of Wednesday’s London derby, the Premier League made it clear it was not in favor of an interim leave, saying it relied entirely on its Covid-19 contracts and was able to fulfill its remaining games as planned.

“With the low number of good tests in most clubs, the Premier League continues to have full confidence in its COVID-19 agreements and is able to continue playing our games as planned,” said a Premier League spokesman.

The statement went on to say: “Fulham FC’s match at Tottenham Hotspur, which is scheduled to be played at 6pm, has been postponed following a Premier League Board meeting this afternoon.

“Fulham have applied to the Premier League Board to reschedule the game after a sharp rise in Covid-19 fine offenses, as well as a host of sign players today.

“The Premier League Board has consulted with its medical advisors and the decision to postpone the match has been taken as a precautionary measure and the health of the players and staff is at the forefront. The team will now be re-discussed immediately.

There were 18 fine cases in the top flight in the latest round of tests – the highest since the onset of the epidemic – with City, Arsenal and Blades also confirming good cases.
