Tottenham-Arsenal derby postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak

Tottenham Hotspur’s home game against Arsenal on Sunday has been postponed, the Premier League announced on Saturday.

The North London derby is the 21st game to be called off in the Premier League this season, after several clubs have struggled with COVID-19 outbreaks within their camps.

It is also the second league game to be postponed this weekend after Leicester City’s trip to Burnley was called off on Friday.

Arsenal had requested on Friday for the match against Spurs to be postponed, citing a depleted squad due to COVID-19 cases, injuries and some players participating at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
