The Premier League will not postpone any further matches after Wednesday’s clash between Manchester City and Arsenal was called off due to the coronavirus scourge.

In a statement posted on their website the league’s running body says it has taken all the necessary measures to ensure that action goes on uninterrupted.

“All necessary measures are being taken and the Premier League currently has no plans to postpone any other matches,” the statement read in part.

The stance comes in the wake of a cancelled league tie that the Premier League has now rescheduled.

“Tonight’s Premier League match between Manchester City and Arsenal 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,” the body says.
