Premier League reveals if Tottenham vs Leicester match will go ahead

The Premier League has already confirmed that this weekend’s match between Tottenham and Leicester City will take place as scheduled.

In an official statement, the league stated that seven of the 10 scheduled matches, including the one at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, would go as scheduled.

This weekend’s schedule also includes Aston Villa vs. Southampton, Nottingham Forest vs. Fulham, Wolves vs. Man City, Newcastle vs. Bournemouth, Brentford vs. Arsenal, and Everton vs. West Ham.

Brighton vs. Crystal Palace, Chelsea vs. Liverpool, and Manchester United vs. Leeds will be postponed following negotiations with clubs, the police, and advisory bodies.

This comes after the entire football schedule was postponed last weekend as the nation mourned the untimely passing of Her Majesty the Queen.

A statement from the Premier League read: “Premier League fixtures will resume this weekend after a pause to the season as a mark of respect following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“Seven of the ten Premier League fixtures this weekend will be played, with three games postponed due to events surrounding the Queen’s funeral.

“In addition, kick-off times will change for two Premier League matches.

“Games postponed on Sunday 18 September are Chelsea FC’s game against Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge, and Manchester United’s home match versus Leeds United.

“Brighton and Hove Albion FC’s fixture against Crystal Palace FC, due to be played at 3pm on Saturday 17 September, will also remain postponed.”

The statement added: “Following extensive consultation with clubs, police, local Safety Advisory Groups and other relevant authorities, there was no other option but to postpone the three fixtures.

“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 ahead of the weekend.

“For the matches being played during the period of National Mourning, tributes will be paid to The Queen at Premier League stadiums.

“New dates for the postponed matches will be announced in due course.”

Tuesday will see Tottenham Hotspur play Sporting Lisbon away in the Champions League, followed by a home match against Leicester, which will be televised on Sky Sports.
