Arsenal have confirmed that the Premier League match with Everton, scheduled for 9 March, has been postponed due to the Toffees’ involvement in the FA Cup.
David Moyes’ side sealed safe passage to the 6th Round after last night’s 3-1 replay win over Oldham at Goodison Park and will now play Wigan instead of travelling to London.
With a new date yet to be scheduled Arsenal now face the prospect of a mini winter break at a traditionally busy time of year.
There’s a full ten days between Sunday’s North London derby and the second-leg of our Champions League clash against Bayern Munich meaning we’ve plenty of time to plan our German heist.
Arseblog News suspects it might be a good period to practice our shooting. And tackling. And passing. And set pieces. And marking. And goal keeping. And…
You get the picture.
UPDATE – The club have confirmed Arsenal will play Everton at the Emirates on Tuesday, 16 April unless the Blues reach the FA Cup semi-final in which case it’ll be pushed back 24 hours.
