FOOTBALL fans can’t wait to see the drama in Arsenal’s delicious clash with Manchester City – but they’ll have to wait a little longer.
The Gunners and City have been the two best-performing teams in the Premier League this season.
And Pep Guardiola’s side should travel to the Emirates in the near future.
But SunSport has all the knowledge as to why the game was postponed.
Why was Arsenal vs Man City postponed?
Arsenal’s Premier League game against Manchester City has been postponed to make up for the north London club’s previously canceled Europa League clash with PSV Eindhoven.
The Gunners were due to play PSV on Thursday September 15 but the game was postponed due to concerns about police resources following the sad death of Queen Elizabeth II.
And Arsenal have been told they must complete their Europa League group games before Thursday, November 3 or face the risk of giving up three points.
But Prem bosses agreed with Arsenal to postpone one of their league games to allow a PSV encounter to take place.
A Premier League statement read: “The Premier League has agreed with UEFA to postpone Arsenal FC’s Premier League match against Manchester City FC, originally scheduled for October 19, to accommodate Arsenal FC’s rescheduled match in of the UEFA Europa League to allow PSV Eindhoven.
“Arsenal FC vs PSV Eindhoven, originally scheduled for Thursday 15 September, will now be played on Thursday 20 October at 18:00.”
When should Arsenal play Man City?
The Gunners were ready to play against Manchester City Wednesday October 19th before the shifts.
Was there a new date for Arsenal vs Man City?
There’s no set date for Arsenal’s eye-catching clash against Manchester City yet.
The Premier League said: “A new date for Arsenal FC vs Manchester City FC will be announced in due course.”
However, reports suggest they could press the big game towards the end of the season once the World Cup is over.
