Premier League Statement
Premier League games will resume this weekend after a season break as a mark of respect following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Seven of the ten Premier League matches this weekend will be played, and three will be postponed due to events surrounding the Queen’s funeral.
In addition, the kick-off times for two Premier League matches will change.
Postponed games on Sunday 18 September are Chelsea FC’s game against Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge and Manchester United’s home game against Leeds United.
Brighton & Hove Albion FC’s game against Crystal Palace FC, to be played at 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 17, also remains postponed.

After extensive consultations with clubs, police, local security advisory groups and other relevant authorities, the only option was to postpone the three games.
The Premier League would like to thank the UK Football Policing Unit and other police forces across the country, as well as our broadcast partners, for their support during this process, and will continue to liaise with them over the weekend.
For the matches played during the period of national mourning, the Premier League stadiums pay tribute to the Queen.
New dates for the postponed matches will be announced in due course.
