What Met Police have indicated to Arsenal about their game against PSV next week - journalists

Arsenal‘s Premier League game against Everton this weekend has been cancelled following the Queen’s death, but what will happen to the Gunners’ Europa League clash against PSV Eindhoven next week

Mikel Arteta’s side returned to winning ways yesterday against FC Zurich after suffering their first defeat of the season at Manchester United last weekend. Arsenal would’ve loved to carry that form to the game on Sunday, but that clash has been postponed now.

The Gunners’ next fixture, as per their schedule, is against Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven in the Europa League next week.

Fans have been wondering if that fixture will be called off as well, but a couple of well-informed journalists have just revealed what they’ve heard about the game on Thursday.

Arsenal vs PSV Eindhoven not expected to be cancelled

Charles Watts of Goal and PA Sport’s Mark Mann-Brynes have both revealed on Twitter that the Gunners’ Europa League clash at the Emirates is not expected to be cancelled or postponed, as things stand.

The Metropolitan Police have apparently indicated to Arsenal that they are comfortable with the game going ahead as planned.

Watts tweeted a few moments ago: “As it stands, Arsenal are hopeful that the Europa League game with PSV on Thursday night will go ahead as planned.

“The Met Police have indicated during discussions that they are comfortable with the match taking place. Final confirmation should come over the weekend.”

Mann-Brynes wrote: “Understand Arsenal are confident their Europa League fixture against PSV Eindhoven will go ahead as planned on Thursday night.”

“Believe that Met Police have indicated to the club that they are comfortable with the match being played at Emirates Stadium.”

Arsenal would’ve loved to play against Everton this weekend, but that game will not take place now.

Arteta has to get his side ready for a tricky game against PSV in the Europa League. The Dutch giants are more than capable of causing a few problems to the Gunners, which makes this a really interesting fixture.

To add to what’s at stake in the group, the game on Thursday will see Ruud van Nistelrooy, who is now the manager of PSV, return to face Arsenal.

That spices things up even more and it could get feisty at the Emirates.
