Arsenal have confirmed that the Europa League clash with PSV Eindhoven at Emirates Stadium will now be played at 6pm on 20 October.
The match was originally due to take place tomorrow but has been postponed because the police are focusing their resources on marshalling the crowds assembling in the capital to pay tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II.
The Gunners’ Premier League match with Manchester City, originally scheduled for 19 October, has been sacrificed to ensure we’re able to fulfil our European commitments.
Clearly a 6pm start time isn’t ideal but we’re guessing it’s been selected so the match doesn’t clash with two Premier League matches that are being broadcast by Amazon Prime Video.
A date for the visit of Pep Guardiola’s reigning champions is yet to be agreed but it’s looking like it will have to take place after the World Cup. The same goes for the clash with Everton which should have happened last Sunday.
