Tottenham fans have been left scratching their heads after the club’s official Twitter account suggested that today’s clash with Crystal Palace IS still on.
In light of all the recent postponements, fans of Premier League clubs are likely to be growing accustomed to the possibility that any game could be called off at any moment.
Spurs fans who were planning to make the trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium today were met with the news last night that the game was set to be postponed after COVID outbreak in the Palace camp.
Breaking – Crystal Palace’s game against Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow is OFF.

However, the Tottenham Twitter account sent out their matchday tweet this morning as planned, which has left Spurs fans in the replies questioning whether the game IS or ISN’T going ahead today.

Very, very poor form tweeting this if it goes on to get cancelled.

Why don’t you actually liaise with the club before you put something on social media and get our hopes up?

The ridiculousness of the @premierleague right now. Rumoured postponement doing the rounds while the club still Tweets this. Can someone tell the fans WTF is going on! You will lose us if you keep messing us around! #sortitout #getagrip

In reality, this post would have been scheduled pre-Christmas and it’s unlikely that anyone from the Spurs social media team will have been on at the crack of dawn this morning.
While there is also no official confirmation from the Premier League that the game is off, they can only act as though it’s going ahead as planned, which, as things stand, it is.
It’s a horribly precarious situation for all involved but that is, unfortunately, the state of play in the Premier League at current – and there’s no end in sight.
