Arsenal on-loan players who could be in action this weekend including 'incredible' goal machine
Arsenal are not in Premier League action this weekend.
The Gunners were scheduled to take on Everton at the Emirates Stadium.
However, the Premier League has postponed matchday seven following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
A statement from the league’s official website on Friday read: “At a meeting this morning, Premier League clubs paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
“To honour her extraordinary life and contribution to the nation, and as a mark of respect, this weekend’s Premier League match round will be postponed, including Monday evening’s game.”
Arsenal have a number of players out on loan overseas whose clubs will be – or have been – in action this weekend.
Let’s take a look at which senior players on the Gunners books could be playing, or have already played.
