” Arsenal FC v PSV Eindhoven, originally listed to be played on Thursday 15 September, will now be played on Thursday 20 October, 1800.
” A new date for the Arsenal FC v Manchester City FC institution will be blazoned in due course.”
The league earlier faces a challenge to rearrange all of last weekend’s matches, which were postponed as a sign of respect to the Queen, plus three games due to be played this weekend- Brighton v Crystal Palace, Manchester United v Leeds and Chelsea v Liverpool.
Those games have been postponed due to police resourcing issues, as the authorities prepare for the Queen’s state burial on Monday. Brighton v Palace had earlier been laid over prior to the Queen’s death due to a planned rail strike. Indeed though the industrial action has now been called off, the game remains postponed for policing reasons.
Finding accessible slots in the calendar for all these matches is specifically challenging this season because of the staging of the World Cup in Qatar in November and December.
