Jose Mourinho made fun of the Premier League’s ‘Best league in the world’ tag by revealing he and his Tottenham players still have no idea if they will play Fulham in less than four hours time.  

The Tottenham boss uploaded a video to his Instagram page where he is sat alongside his fellow coaches with his feet up on the sofa watching Sky Sports News. 

Accompanying the video, Mourinho sarcastically captioned the video: ‘Match at 6pm… We still don’t know if we play. Best league in the world.’

There is still uncertainty over the game going ahead with a matter of hours until the scheduled kick-off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and Mourinho’s video showed he is far from happy with the situation.

As revealed by the Athletic on Tuesday , a number of people associated with Fulham have tested positive for the virus and as such the game has been placed in doubt.

Fulham boss Scott Parker will return to the dugout for the game should it get given the green light, following the completion a 10-day self-isolation period after a member of his household tested positive for Covid-19.  

The 40-year-old returned a negative test last week but continued to self-isolate in accordance with the Government guidelines before returning another negative test at the weekend.

On Tuesday the Premier League confirmed that there are 18 new positive Covid-19 tests among players and staff, the highest weekly total since Project Restart. 

The latest round of testing saw 1,479 players and staff tested and the results show a sharp increase on last week’s total. 

Manchester City’s trip to Everton on Monday was cancelled just hours before kick-off, a decision which left the Merseyside club furious and demanding a full explanation.  It is only the second game to be postponed due to Covid-19 after Newcastle’s visit to Aston Villa at the start of the December was called off.
