Tonight’s game in the third round of the Carabao Cup, the English League Cup, between Leyton Orient and Tottenham has been postponed due to several positive cases of Covid-19 in the lower tier team.
Orient was due to host José Mourinho’s team tonight, but the game had to be postponed and the Breyer stadium isolated.
It was Tottenham himself to pay for the tests of the local Liga2 team, carried out last Sunday.
Non-professional clubs are not required to test every week this season, as in the Premier League.

Tottenham’s tight schedule – and in England – will make scheduling the game very complicated – with the fourth round taking place at the end of the month, with the winner facing Chelsea or Barnsley.
Leyton Orient was also forced to notify the latest club they played with – Mansfield Town, Plymouth Argyle and Oldham Athletic.
