The Premier League have accepted a request from Arsenal to postpone their game with Manchester City next month to accommodate a rearranged Europa League game against PSV Eindhoven.

Talks were held between Arsenal, the Premier League and UEFA to find a compromise, which was confirmed on Wednesday morning.

Arsenal v City, which was supposed to take place on October 19, will now be rearranged at a later date and Arsenal v PSV will take place a day later on October 20 instead.

A UEFA statement said: “UEFA would like to thank the Premier League and the clubs concerned for their flexibility and cooperation in rescheduling the UEFA Europa League match, which was postponed because local police forces were unable to carry out a to ensure safe delivery. “

UEFA regulations stipulate that the home side lose points if they are unable to play a game for whatever reason, but Arsenal have avoided that danger. Mikel Arteta’s team won the opening game of Group A against FC Zürich 2-1 last week.
