Manchester City may return to Premier League action against Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend, after the FA had just announced that England football matches would return.
Last weekend’s games were postponed, but this weekend’s series of games continues. But not all games. It will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis due to the police concerns regarding Monday’s royal funeral.
Games in London are in danger of being postponed.
In a statement released today by the FA, they said this about the return of football.
Manchester City’s match against Wolves may go ahead, but matches in London are unlikely to take place due to police problems.
Arsenal’s Europa League match against PSV on Thursday has been cancelled. The decision was announced today by both clubs and will be re-adopted in due course.
