Leicester Mercury have revealed that Tottenham’s clash against Leicester City next weekend could also be called off, due to concerns over policing.

Following the sad passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday, the Premier League announced that all of this weekend’s fixtures, including the top-of-the-table clash between Spurs and Manchester City, would be postponed to a later date.

There are also doubts over whether next weekend’s fixtures will go ahead, with journalist Richard Buxton suggesting on Friday that the matches in gameweek 7 are also expected to be postponed in line with the Queen’s state funeral.

Leicester Mercury have now revealed that there are worries, in particular, about the Foxes’ clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which is scheduled for 5.30 pm on Saturday, September 17.

It is explained that there are concerns over policing as preparations begin for a state funeral for Her Majesty.

The report adds that the Met Police and government have said that the final decision on Leicester’s clash with Spurs, as well as the other games next weekend, will be made by the Premier League.

Spurs Web Opinion

I would be very surprised if the Premier League postpone next weekend’s fixtures, given that other sports, like cricket and rugby, have chosen to go ahead with their matches. Given the congested nature of the schedule this season, I do not think the PL can afford to push back any more fixtures.
