Jose Mourinho is planning to go ahead as planned on Wednesday for Tottenham’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa.

On Friday, Villa used young players in a 4-1 FA Cup defeat to Liverpool after a big coronavirus outbreak.

The outbreak put their hosting of Spurs at risk, but for Tottenham, a postponement would cause further fixture uncertainty.

After a 5-0 FA Cup win over Marine on Sunday, Mourinho was asked when Tottenham’s next game would be and the Spurs head coach responded: “Wednesday.”

“No one has told me any different that I am not going to play so tomorrow morning we’ll start preparing that game,” he added.

“The same Tuesday, unless we’re told differently.”

In the Premier League table, Spurs are fourth, four points behind Liverpool and Manchester United.

In the Carabao Cup final, Mourinho and co. are also expected to face Manchester City, though Spurs also remain involved in the knockout stages of the Europa League.

On Sunday, however, behind a Carlos Vinicius hat-trick, they took down lower-league Navy, with Lucas Moura and Alfie Devine scoring as well.

In the process, Devine became the youngest-ever debutant for Tottenham and the youngest-ever goalscorer for the club.

Marine manager, Neil Young was full of praise after the match for how Spurs handled the game, telling BBC Radio, “It was a nice, tough week because we had a lot of media duties, and we also have jobs with our players being part-time, but we will reflect.”
