LONDON (AP):

Tottenham's Premier League game against Aston Villa on Wednesday has been postponed, with Jose Mourinho's team instead facing Fulham on the same day.

Villa requested for their game against Tottenham to be rescheduled, the league said yesterday, after a coronavirus outbreak at its training ground last week that led to 14 positive cases -- 10 among players.

The Tottenham-Fulham game, originally scheduled for December 30, was postponed following an outbreak of the virus in the Fulham squad.

Because Fulham is now playing against Tottenham in midweek, their match against Chelsea, scheduled for Friday, has now been pushed back to Saturday.
