Two Tottenham Hotspur players have tested positive for coronavirus before Sunday's match against Newcastle United.
The two anonymous players practiced with the rest of the team on Thursday, but both tested positive in the last 24 hours, forcing them to isolate for the next ten days.
It automatically eliminates the two from Sunday's trip to St James' Park, Thursday's Europa League Conference match against Vitesse Arnhem, and next weekend's London derby against West Ham United.
According to PA, the club is optimistic that no other players will be forced to isolate as a result of this.
Tottenham had a lot of issues after the September international break, with players being ruled out due to injury and isolation.
Spurs had won all of their league games previous to the break, but then dropped their next three.
‘After the international break, there are always huge issues that happen,’ manager Nuno Espirito Santo said on Friday.
‘We have problems but I will not say before the game.’
