Tottenham vs Arsenal north London derby postponed

The North London derby has been postponed after the Premier League accepted Arsenal’s plea to call off the match despite having only one known case of Covid. 

Tottenham are expected to express disappointment at the late cancellation which was approved after Mikel Arteta was left with just 12 fit outfield players. 

It is the second postponed fixture for Arsenal after their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Liverpool was also delayed by a week. 

There was just one widely known Covid case in the squad, but Cedric Soares, Bukayo Sak, Calum Chambers and Kieran Tierney are said to be injured. Granit Xhaka is suspended.
