FOOTBALL fans are facing weeks without the beautiful game after the Premier League’s coronavirus cancellation was extended.
But the break might be welcome for some Spurs fans, who have seen their side make a poor start to 2020 under Jose Mourinho – and there looks to be a big summer ahead for last season’s Champions League finalists.
They look set to go without a trophy again and face a monumental task to secure European football after a horror run of results.
West Ham meanwhile are battling the drop and only remain out of the bottom three on goal difference, going down 1-0 to Arsenal in their last game.
When will Tottenham vs West Ham be played?
DUE to the coronavirus pandemic, this top-flight game has been postponed.

This London derby was originally slated for TONIGHT, March 20.
Kick-off was due for 8pm under the lights at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
But with uncertainty gripping not just the sporting calendar but society in general, there is no set date for it to be replayed.

Live streaming will be available on either the official West Ham website or via Twitch.
