Premier League: Leicester v Tottenham game on despite both clubs asking for postponement

'We are a bit scared', says Conte on Covid-19 outbreak.

Both clubs requested that the game be postponed, but it will go ahead.

There are issues and injuries that are keeping nine players out of Thursday's home game.

The game with Rennes was called off last week due to a Covid outbreak.

Brendan Rodgers said that they weren't granted permission.

We have always wanted to support all the measures, but when we need a little support, we weren't able to get it.

The new Covid measures were agreed to by the premier league.

There was a lot of doubt about the game against Newcastle on Sunday, but for the greater good of the game and for the supporters, it went ahead.

We have picked up more injuries since then. They are not related to Covid, but they are related because we can't keep everyone in the squad because of injuries.

The final group game between Spurs and Rennes will not have to be played by 31 December according to Uefa.

The result of the match will be decided next week by the Uefa control, ethics andDisciplinary body.

Spurs have offered to travel to France to play the game, which is a home fixture, as a win would send them through to a play-off.

Rennes have already qualified for the knockout stages as group winners, while Spurs are in third place.
