Although the club knows they will at least get to make up their missed Premier League match from the weekend, otherwise, it has been a lost week for Spurs.
For Tottenham Hotspur, the events of this past week were in motion before Spurs even beat Norwich 3-0 a week ago, with the first of many players tested positive for Covid. Bryan Gil and Emerson Royal were both left out of the side entirely although most at the time only knew the two were ill.
Covid came quickly to Tottenham
From those two on Sunday things spread quickly with Spurs shutting down their First Team training centre by Wednesday evening. At that point more than a dozen players and staff had tested positive and Tottenham was asking UEFA to postpone their Europa Conference League fixture with Rennes.
Further, Tottenham appealed to the Premier League board which granted a postponement of their scheduled game with Brighton, which was scheduled to have been played this past Sunday, December 12.
Now five days later, Spurs are apparently going to be re-opening the First Team training centre and resume activities, with hopes that Spurs will be able to travel to Leicester City on Thursday and continue their season.
While Tottenham did what they could and should have done to try and stop the spread of yet another Covid variant, those actions are likely to come at a stiff price for the club. Spurs tried to control what they could, it is what Tottenham cannot control that will likely leave a mark from the past week’s events.
