And Tottenham could also play Leicester at the King Power Stadium amid the chaos.

The Queen’s death on Thursday resulted in Premier League, EFL and all FA games being postponed this weekend.

And negotiations are still ongoing over what needs to be done for next week’s final round of Premier League games before the international break.

The state funeral will be held at Westminster Abbey in London on Monday September 19, meaning thousands of people are pouring into the capital and police officers are needed at short notice.

Three games are scheduled in London on Saturday and Sunday.

Tottenham host Leicester at 17.30 on Saturday, a day before Brentford take on Arsenal and Chelsea in the weekend’s standout clash with Liverpool.

And according to The Athletic, there is ongoing debate over where – if at all – the games should be played amid one of the largest police operations in British history.

One suggestion is to switch locations so that away teams play at home instead – with Chelsea and Spurs traveling to Liverpool and Leicester instead, while there would be no point in moving Brentford’s game to Arsenal via London.

However, this is considered unpopular as trying to organize a home game including tickets and staff in one week is enormously complicated.

And if no solution is found, the London games could be postponed, which would then mean finding another time to fit the rearranged games into the already-stacked football calendar, especially with the Winter World Cup looming.

To make matters worse, all three games feature teams participating in European competitions.

The Metropolitan Police told The Athletic: “Whether games go ahead is a matter for football authorities.

“When games go ahead the Met will work with relevant partners and ensure appropriate policing plans are in place.”
