Premier League has announced that Manchester City vs Arsenal in October has been postponed

The premier league revealed this shocking news on Tuesday 13th September that the match between Manchester City and Arsenal would be postponed.

After the announcement about the news of The Monarch passing away, the Premier League announced that all games last weekend would be postponed. This affected several matches during the weekend.

Some postponed matches were fixed on Monday 12th September and several matches have been played.

The Queen’s funeral which was announced for Monday 19th September would mean a further three games -Brighton v Crystal Palace, Chelsea vs Liverpool and Manchester United v Leeds- has to be postponed for this coming weekend due to the issues of lack of sufficient police as more of the police team would be on the funeral ground to honor the Queen.

The Premier League has been facing a lot of challenges to rearrange all last weekend’s matches which were postponed to serve as respect to marking the Queen’s death.

A Premier League statement was added. “The Premier League has agreed with UEFA to postpone Arsenal FC’s Premier League match with Manchester City FC, originally due to be played on 19th October, to allow for Arsenal FC’s re-arranged UEFA Europa League game with PSV Eindhoven.

“Arsenal FC v PSV Eindhoven, originally scheduled to be played on Thursday 15 September, will now be played on Thursday 20 October, 18:00.

Arsenal’s Europa League fixture against PSV on Thursday night has also been postponed. This has led to the Premier League making a decision as regards the fixtures in the future.

The Premier League announced through Sky Sports that Arsenal versus Manchester City which was scheduled to play on Wednesday 19th October has been postponed and a new date will be announced soon.

The postponement was due to Arsenal versus PSV being re-scheduled for Thursday 20th October with the Europa League competition given priority due to its knockout format.

We hope that this marks the end of the fixture chaos, as the recent congestion that has been occurring since the Queen’s dismissal is taking a negative turn on both the players, clubs, and other stakeholders.

We know this stage will be a tough one for players, especially with the World Cup that will take place in the middle of the season.

It has really been a challenging time for the organizers to find available slots in the calender for these matches because of the staging of the World Cup that will take place in Qatar in November and December.
