Ryan Mason reacts with five words after Manchester City v Tottenham is called off

The Premier League match between Manchester City and Tottenham due to take place tomorrow has been cancelled.

An official statement 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.”

Richard Masters, Premier League Chief Executive, added: “We and our clubs would like to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s long and unwavering service to our country. As our longest-serving monarch, she has been an inspiration and leaves behind an incredible legacy following a life of dedication.  

“This is a tremendously sad time for not just the nation but also for the millions of people around the world who admired her, and we join together with all those in mourning her passing.”

Manchester City vs Tottenham cancelled

City and Spurs are the only two remaining unbeaten teams in the division and those records will extend for a little longer after the postponement.

There will be different opinions on whether the call was right but Spurs coach Ryan Mason made his feelings perfectly clear on Twitter.

He clearly feels it was the right decision to postpone all football across the leagues this weekend as a mark of respect.

Tottenham of course did the double over City in the Premier League last season, recording one-goal victories in both matches.

City have since added Erling Haaland to their squad, among others, with Spurs increasing their squad depth with a summer of spending.

But that clash will have to wait and the Premier League statement also said that a decision and announcement about forthcoming games will happen in due course.
