Jose Mourinho struggled to understand Scott Parker's dismay at the rescheduling of Fulham's match against Tottenham for Wednesday.
The fixture was initially set to be played at the end of last month, only to be called off shortly before kick-off due to a coronavirus outbreak in the Fulham camp.
Mourinho fumed at that decision but was encouraged by the call to instead face Fulham this week as Aston Villa, their latest scheduled opponents, battle their own COVID-19 issues.
The Villa game has been pushed back, allowing Spurs to catch up on the Fulham fixture.
"The biggest impact is to have matches postponed, that is the biggest impact," Mourinho said.
