One of the most exciting duels in European football is on Sunday: Arsenal meets Tottenham Hotspur. However, the hosts want to postpone the game due to numerous corona failures.
This was confirmed by Arsenal FC on Friday evening. In addition to the Covid absences, the Londoners also have to do without numerous players due to injuries and the Africa Cup of Nations, so manager Mikel Arteta can only plan with a B squad.
Arsenal already had to play with a weakened team in yesterday’s League Cup match against Liverpool. After that game, Calum Chambers, Bukayo Saka, Kieran Tierney and Cedric Soares are also injured.
It is still unclear whether the Premier League will accept the application.
