Chelsea’s Women’s Super League clash with Tottenham at Kingsmeadow has been postponed due to positive coronavirus cases in the Spurs squad.

The clubs both released statements confirming the news at around 4.30pm on Wednesday, just over three hours ahead of the scheduled kick-off.

Tottenham said on their official website: “Tottenham Hotspur Women can confirm that our Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture at Chelsea this evening has been postponed.

“The decision was agreed between the club and the FA after a number of positive tests for Covid-19 were returned within the squad.

“A new date will be announced in due course and all existing tickets purchased for the match will remain valid.

“The health and safety of both sets of players and staff remains paramount.

“We should like to apologise to everyone at Chelsea and to both their supporters and ours for any inconvenience caused.”

Champions Chelsea are currently second in the WSL, two points behind leaders Arsenal with a game in hand, while Tottenham are fifth.
