Arsenal make request to postpone north London derby due to absences

Published on: 14 January 2022

Arsenal have submitted an official request to the Premier League to postpone this weekend's north London derby against Tottenham.

The request comes amid a slew of absences for the Gunners due to injuries, Covid-19, the Africa Cup of Nations and a red card to midfielder Granit Xhaka during Thursday's Carabao Cup clash with Liverpool.

The absences have left the Arsenal squad extremely shorthanded, with the club now requesting a postponement of this weekend's Premier League match due to a lack of available players.

"We can confirm we have made an application to the Premier League for the postponement of Sunday’s north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur," Arsenal said in a statement.

"We have reluctantly taken this step but we have many players currently unavailable across our squad as a result of Covid, injuries and players away with their countries at AFCON.

"We will provide more information as soon as it’s available."
