EPL: Manchester United vs. Leeds And Chelsea vs. Liverpool Games Are Postponed
Although the Premier League will resume this weekend, not all of the week eight games will be played.
Football will resume this week, the Football Association announced on Monday, but there will be restrictions because there won’t be enough police personnel to attend every game in light of the activities surrounding the Queen’s burial, which is scheduled for Monday, September 19.
The FA decided to take the weekend off from scheduling Premier League games in order to reflect on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday.
The September 18 matches between Manchester United and Leeds at Old Trafford and Chelsea and Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, respectively, have been postponed.
Despite the postponement of a planned train strike, Brighton’s match against Crystal Palace on September 17 is still cancelled.
Other alterations include moving Everton vs. West Ham to 2:15 p.m. and moving Brentford vs. Arsenal to a lunchtime start.
