Arsenal vs PSV

UEFA has confirmed that Arsenal’s Europa League game at the Emirates against PSV on Thursday will no longer hold as scheduled due to a shortage of police officers.

This comes on the heels of postponement of all Premier League games scheduled for last weekend as the United Kingdom mourns the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

“UEFA today announced that the UEFA Europa League tie between Arsenal FC and PSV Eindhoven, originally to be played on Thursday 15 September, has been postponed with a new date to be communicated in due course.

“This is due to the severe limitations on police resources and organisational issues related to the ongoing events surrounding the national mourning for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” the UEFA statement partly read.

Every other European tie will go on this midweek, including Liverpool’s home fixture against Ajax and Chelsea’s Champions League tie with RB Salzburg in West London.

Rangers’ fixture at home to Napoli has been shifted from Tuesday to Wednesday, with the authorities failing to guarantee enough police officers for Tuesday.
