"No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League and results will be made public on a weekly basis."

Thursday's clash in the capital is the beginning of a hectic fixture schedule for Tottenham as we head into the festive period.

Conte is relatively new into his tenure but faces a juggling act as he tries to keep players fit, whilst he is likely to be without some on health grounds.

Those who tested positive would have to isolate.

Tottenham's next Premier League clash is a trip to Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

After that they head to Leicester City on Thursday before Liverpool travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium three days later.

Those who tested positive using lateral flow tests will undergo a further PCR test on Tuesday to ensure the results are correct, as first reported by Football.London.

Games in Europe, as per UEFA rules for the competition, elude to the fact that a game can only be postponed if "less than 13 players registered on the A list or no registered goalkeeper are available".

Tottenham are not in that situation meaning the game would still go ahead, it is understood.

The Premier League meanwhile takes a different approach and games can be cancelled as a result of Covid outbreaks.

During the winter last term Manchester City saw a game at Everton called off whilst Tottenham themselves had a clash with Fulham postponed.
