Premier League matches involving Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham could all be played next weekend as the date for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral has been confirmed as an holiday for the country.

All the football matches between September 9-11 was canceled after the Queen passed away at age 96 on Thursday, September 8, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham all scheduled to play European matches within the period.

They have been put into doubt after millions of people are expected to journey to London in the coming days to pay respect to Britain’s longest-serving monarch Queen Elizabeth, with police likely to be stretched across the country.

Although, UEFA is yet to make an announcement as regards all other fixtures. Arsenal’s match will be on Thursday at the Emirates Stadium while Chelsea is to face RB Salzburg on Wednesday evening, the same day.

These matches could now be followed by the return to Premier League as stated in the fixtures before the Queen’s death.

The funeral, which could have been held on Sunday, would have clashed with Chelsea’s match against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge – now expected to be Graham Potter’s first league game in charge – whilst Arsenal face Brentford in West London and Tottenham play at home against Leicester on Saturday evening.

To avoid these game clashes, there is more chance that the games will be played over the weekend. This is especially important in football terms given the already packed schedule ahead of the winter World Cup in Qatar.

The Department of Culture, Media and Sport confirmed to football_london that their guidance given before the Premier League’s decision to postpone games would not change. “Our guidance will stay the same. There’s no obligation to cancel as far as the government is concerned. But it’s ultimately up to the Premier League and EFL to make those decisions.”

The Met Police also said that “Whether matches go ahead is a matter for the football authorities. If fixtures do take place, the Met will work with the relevant partners and ensure that appropriate policing plans are in place.”
