EPL: Why Man City may not play Arsenal on October 19 – Guardiola
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said their Premier League clash at Arsenal could be called off because of the Premier League’s fixture pile up.
The top two teams in England’s top flight are scheduled to meet at the Emirates on October 19.
But Guardiola has suggested the match could be postponed to accommodate Arsenal’s Europa League game against PSV Eindhoven.
PSV’s trip to London which was scheduled for Thursday, has been moved ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday.
But the game would have to be played before the first Europa League knockout draw on November 7 and the week of City’s game against Arsenal is one option for the rearranged date.
“After the international break, we’ll have one month and a half with a lot of games.
“We have seven Premier League games, five games at home, it depends if the Arsenal game will be postponed or not. Then the World Cup,” Guardiola told a news conference on Tuesday.
