Arsenal are hopeful their match against PSV Eindhoven on Thursday will go ahead as planned, despite all the current postponements.
Charles Watts, Mark Mann-Bryans, and Simon Collings all report that Arsenal currently believe their match against PSV Eindhoven is going ahead.
The Met Police have reportedly indicated they’re comfortable with the game being played, and there’s likely to be confirmation either way over the weekend.
This weekend’s matches were all called off following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, and there are concerns that next weekend’s matches might also be disrupted as a result of policing issues related to the Queen’s funeral.
But with no obvious reason why the midweek games should be disrupted, it currently looks like they’ll go ahead.
Arsenal opened their Europa League campaign with a group stage win over FC Zurich last Thursday, with Marquinhos starring on his debut.
With PSV drawing their opening game, Arsenal have the chance to open up a five-point lead over Thursday night’s opponents with a win. That would certainly put the team in a strong position after the opening two games.
