Arsenal’s postponed game with Manchester City could be played next week, according to The Mirror.
The Gunners were originally supposed to face Pep Guardiola’s side at the Etihad last weekend but their progress to the League Cup final, which they won on Sunday, scuppered things.
It looked like the game might get shunted towards the end of the season, however, with Arsenal crashing out of the Europa League and City not due to face Real in the return leg of their Champions League clash until 17 March a space in the calendar has arisen.
Arsenal play West Ham on Saturday at the Emirates and then travel to Brighton a week later. City have the Manchester derby on Sunday and then take on Burnley on 14 March.
A decision on whether the fixture will be played on Wednesday 11 March is expected to be made inside 24 hours. Presumably, both clubs will then have to rush through the ticket selling process.
