FOOTBALL fans are itching to see the drama unfold in Arsenal’s mouth-watering clash with Manchester City – but they’ll have to wait a little longer.
The Gunners and City have been the two of the top-performing teams in the Premier League this season.
And Pep Guardiola’s side was scheduled to travel to the Emirates in the nearby future.
But SunSport has all the knowledge on why the game has been postponed.
Why is Arsenal vs Man City been postponed?
Arsenal’s Premier League fixture against Manchester City has been postponed to accommodate the North London club’s previous called-off Europa League clash with PSV Eindhoven.
The Gunners were scheduled to play PSV on Thursday, September 15 but the match got postponed due to concerns over police resources following the sad death of Queen Elizabeth II.
And, Arsenal was told that they would have to complete their Europa League group games before Thursday, November 3, or face the risk of surrendering three points.
But Prem chiefs agreed with Arsenal to move one of their league games so that PSV encounter could happen.
A statement from the Premier League said: ” The Premier League has agreed with UEFA to postpone Arsenal FC’s Premier League match with Manchester City FC, originally due to be played on 19 October, to allow for Arsenal FC’s re-arranged UEFA Europa League game with PSV Eindhoven.
“Arsenal FC v PSV Eindhoven, originally scheduled to be played on Thursday 15 September, will now be played on Thursday 20 October 18:00.”
When was Arsenal supposed to play Man City?
The Gunners were all set to play Manchester City on Wednesday, October 19 before the postponements.
Has there been a rescheduled date for Arsenal vs Man City?
There is yet to be an agreed date for Arsenal’s eye-catching clash against Manchester City.
The Premier League said: “A new date for the Arsenal FC v Manchester City FC fixture will be announced in due course.”
But reports suggest that they could squeeze the big fixture towards the end of the season once the World Cup has concluded.
