Fulham have not played in the Premier League since Boxing Day, as they have seen two of their last games postponed due to coronavirus.

Fulham will now face Tottenham on Wednesday and Chelsea on Saturday, and their manager Scott Parker is unhappy with the fixture, especially as their game against Spurs was quickly fixed for Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has told the young Fulham manager that there is no reason to complain.

Asked if the fixture schedule was unfair on Fulham, Mourinho replied: “Are you serious?

“They had 48 hours to prepare for this game? You think so? I had the news I was not going to play them two hours before the game started.”

Mourinho also said that the Premier League should find a way to ensure games keep going.

“The biggest impact is to have matches postponed. That is the biggest impact,” Mourinho said.

“The changing of the order of the matches, the impact is minimal because, in the end, you have to play 19 matches at home and 19 matches away, you have to play two matches against every team.

“If it is to help the Premier League to go and to end properly, I think it is a solution we all have to accept as a positive solution.”
