The Sun have revealed that Tottenham’s clash against Sporting Lisbon on Tuesday will not be postponed despite the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
After the sad news that emerged from Buckingham Palace on Thursday, the Premier League decided to call off all fixtures over this weekend as a sign of respect for Her Majesty.
According to Journalist Richard Buxton, next weekend’s fixtures are also expected to be postponed in line with the Queen’s state funeral.
Meanwhile, The Daily Mail’s Mike Keegan revealed earlier today that Premier League clubs would also be given the option of postponing their European commitments next week.
The journalist said he had been told that it is ‘inconceivable’ that British clubs would not be given the option by UEFA to rearrange the fixtures should they wish to do so.
However, The Sun have now claimed that all Champions League matches will go ahead as planned next week.
The report asserts that if any Premier League club were not to fulfil their fixture, they would be forfeiting all three points to the opposition.
