Man City v Arsenal rescheduled for next Wednesday

Thu 05 March 2020 | 10:03

The Premier League match between Manchester City and Arsenal has been postponed to next Wednesday, March 11.

Manchester City will not face Arsenal tomorrow, instead they have to wait almost a week for the clash to take place on next Wednesday, March 11.

It was originally scheduled for Arsenal to visit the Etihad Stadium last weekend, although City's progress to the EFL Cup final meant a new date was required.

All parties have moved swiftly to reorganise the fixture, which will kick off at 19:30 GMT.

Arsenal will face Man City for the first time, since their manager, Mikel Arteta left Man City to take charge of them.

City, who have won the EFL Cup for a third successive season by beating Aston Villa 2-1 at Wembley, won the reverse fixture 3-0 at Emirates Stadium in December.

Eight point behind Chelsea, Arsenal sit on 10th spot in the Premier League table, while Manchester City, having played one game less, are second as Liverpool remains 22 points clear at the top.

Moreover, Man City will be facing Sheffield Wednesday in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday before their clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday – the latter fixture coming a day after Arsenal's own local argument at home to West Ham.
