The Europa League 2022-23 clash between Premier League club Arsenal and Dutch club PSV Eindhoven, which was originally scheduled for September 15, has been postponed to October 20, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) announced on Wednesday.
The UEL clash between Arsenal and PSV was postponed from Thursday this week to October 20 due to the 'severe limitations on police resources and organisational issues ' following the death of Queen Elizabeth II last week.
The rescheduling of the UEL clash between Arsenal and PSV on October 20 has resulted into the postponement of the Premier League fixture between Gunners and defending champions Manchester City, which was scheduled for October 19 at the Emirates Stadium.
The UEFA said in a statement, "The rescheduling of this match was possible after the decision of the Premier League to postpone the domestic match between Arsenal FC and Manchester City FC originally due to be played on 19 October."
"UEFA would like to thank the Premier League and the clubs concerned for their flexibility and cooperation in the rescheduling of the UEFA Europa League match which had been postponed due to the impossibility for local police forces to guarantee its secure staging", it further read.
Meanwhile, Premier League giants Manchester United will face Moldovan club FC Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday at the Stadionul Zimbru in the UEFA Europa League 2022-23 week 2 clash.
