The Premier League will resume this weekend
Aston Villa vs Southampton, Tottenham vs Leicester, Brentford vs Arsenal, Everton vs West Ham all this weekend; Man Utd vs Leeds and Chelsea vs Liverpool off due to policing; Brighton vs Crystal Palace remains off despite cancellation of proposed train strike
The Premier League will resume this weekend but Manchester United vs Leeds and Chelsea vs Liverpool have been postponed with police resources stretched in the wake of the Queen’s death.
All Premier League matches were postponed on the weekend of September 10 and 11 as English football embarked on a period of reflection following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday.
The Football Association confirmed on Monday football would return this week, though limitations to police resources surrounding Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday, September 19 have forced further postponements and rearrangements.
Manchester United’s match against Leeds at Old Trafford and Chelsea and Liverpool’s clash at Stamford Bridge, scheduled for 2pm and 4.30pm on September 18, respectively, have been postponed, while Brighton’s match with Crystal Palace on September 17 remains off despite the cancellation of a proposed train strike.
On September 18, Brentford vs Arsenal has been moved to a 12pm kick-off, while Everton vs West Ham will now take place at 2.15pm.
Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral will take place at 11am on Monday, September 19 at Westminster Abbey, with the entire football schedule postponed that day.
