Premier League postpones 3 games this weekend

The Premier League will resume this weekend after taking a break last week. Three games, however, will be postponed due to the Queen’s funeral. Extreme limitations on police requirements will prevent the games from going through this weekend. 

The schedules will become even more packed this season, due to the postponement of games. The six teams to have two postponed games will also face an uphill task in coping with the intense calendar. 

Premier League fixtures postponed this weekend as well 

The official statement from the Premier League read as follows: 


“Premier League fixtures will resume this weekend after a pause to the season as a mark of respect following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“Seven of the 10 fixtures this weekend will be played, with three matches postponed due to events surrounding The Queen’s funeral.

“In addition, kick-off times will change for two Premier League matches. Matches postponed on Sunday 18 September are Chelsea’s matches against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, and Manchester United’s home match v Leeds United.

“Brighton & Hove Albion’s fixture against Crystal Palace, that was due to be played at 15:00 BST on Saturday 17 September, will also remain postponed. New dates for the postponed matches will be announced in due course.” 

Arsenal’s Europa League game against PSV has also been postponed for the Queen’s funeral on Monday.
