Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho says the Premier League's solution to rearrange their game with Fulham on Wednesday is a "positive" one.
Spurs were due to play Aston Villa but that game was postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak at the midlands club and their match with the Cottagers, postponed on December 30, was hastily slotted in.
"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 away, you have to play two matches against every team.
"If it is to help the Premier League to go and end properly, I think it is a solution we all have to accept as a positive."
