Women’s Super League: Chelsea vs Tottenham postponed due to Covid outbreak in visitors squad | Soccer News

Chelsea Women’s key Women’s Super League clash against Tottenham Women tonight has been postponed due to a Covid outbreak in the Spurs squad.

Emma Hayes’ side were looking to climb to the top of the table after trailing Arsenal – in European duty against Wolfsburg on Wednesday – for most of the season.

However, both sides announced the postponement hours before the game kicked off after a series of positive Covid tests among the Tottenham camp.

A statement from Chelsea read: “Chelsea FC can confirm that tonight’s game against Tottenham Hotspur Women will be postponed.

“The decision has been agreed between the two teams and the FA after a number of positive tests for Covid-19 were returned within the Tottenham Hotspur squad setup following the latest round of testing.

“A revised date for the match will be confirmed in due course. All existing tickets will remain valid.”

The postponement will also put the North London derby on Saturday in doubt. Tottenham are due to face local rivals Arsenal, with the match set to be played at the Emirates Stadium for the first time.
