AP – Arsenal’s postponed Europa League game against PSV Eindhoven has been rescheduled for next month after the Premier League agreed to push back the London club’s midweek match against Manchester City.
UEFA said the Arsenal-PSV game will be played on October 20 after being postponed from today because police did not have resources in London during preparations for the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
Arsenal was due to host Man City on October 19 in a clash of the current top two teams in the Premier League standings.
The Premier League said no new date was yet agreed for the Arsenal-Man City game.
The season is already congested because of the World Cup in Qatar being played from November 20 to December 18.
UEFA wanted the Europa League programme completed on schedule by November 3. Arsenal had no clear midweeks available ahead of the World Cup.
