Premier League moves Arsenal, Chelsea clash

0 24

The clash between Arsenal and Chelsea has been rescheduled due to security reasons.

The Premier League has announced the change in the Premier league match between Arsenal and Chelsea which will now take place on Tuesday, May 2.

This change has been made as a result of the Metropolitan Police revising its position on policing the match.

A statement from Arsenal reads “After working to try to find a solution with the Met Police, we are very disappointed with the impact and disruption this fixture change will cause to our supporters, particularly after this match had been initially approved for a Saturday evening kick-off.”

Premier League statement reads: “The Premier League fixture between Arsenal FC and Chelsea FC at Emirates Stadium, scheduled to take place on Saturday 29 April at 5.30pm, will now take place on Tuesday 2 May at 8.00pm.

“The initial scheduling of this match was approved at a Safety Advisory Group (SAG) meeting in February. However, the Metropolitan Police has now revised its position regarding the kick-off time and requested a further SAG meeting which determined the match had to be re-scheduled.

“We regret the need to move this fixture at late notice and the impact this will have on supporters. The game will remain live on Sky Sports.”

Arsenal remain top of the league as the Gunners leads second place Manchester City with 6 points with the Etihad side having a game at hand.
