Premier League match for 11 March to be rescheduled as a precautionary measure

The Premier League match between Manchester City and Arsenal scheduled for 11 March has been postponed as a precautionary measure following the announcement on Tuesday that Evangelos Marinakis has contracted COVID-19.

Thirteen days ago, Olympiacos played Arsenal at Emirates Stadium in the UEFA Europa League and Mr Marinakis, the Greek club's owner, met with several Arsenal squad members and staff.

Following medical advice, Arsenal FC and Manchester City FC consider it is necessary to postpone their fixture due to be played this evening, Wednesday 11 March, to give time to fully assess the situation.

The Premier League has therefore agreed that tonight's match will be rearranged.

We understand this will cause inconvenience and cost to fans planning to attend the game but Arsenal, Manchester City and the Premier League have agreed that the short notice of Mr Marinakis' infection means there is no alternative but to take the time to complete a proper assessment of risk.

All necessary measures are being taken and the Premier League currently has no plans to postpone any other matches.
