TOTTENHAM are demanding responses from Premier League bosses after their game against Fulham was canceled just over three hours before kick-off

The late decision made Spurs question why the league bosses waited so long to respond to Fulham’s request to postpone – as Jose Mourinho’s side is now in a pairing crisis

Tottenham’s frustration heightened when Mourinho, his staff and players gathered at their base to prepare for the Fulham match, which was canceled just after 2:30 p.m.

Prem bosses said the decision was made due to a “significant increase in Covid cases and a number of players with symptoms”

SunSport understands that six Fulham players and four staff tested positive, which did not mean an automatic shift as there were 14 or more players left

But they had the backing of Public Health England and the Prem added, “The board has consulted its medical advisors and the decision to postpone it is a precaution where the health of players and staff is a priority”

The postponement adds to Spurs’ problems as at least seven games have been played in three competitions over the next month before the Europa League resumes in February
