Premier League restart date to be pushed back 0

Posted on April 03, 2020 by Harry Kettle

The restart date of the Premier League is set to be pushed back beyond April 30 during a meeting of all 20 teams later today.

It’s been a strange few weeks for teams all throughout world football, and that’s certainly true for the English Premier League. It seemed as if they were ready to push forward with putting on games, despite other leagues around the globe postponing or suspending their seasons.

Then, after it was revealed that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had tested positive for COVID-19, a decision was finally made to call things off for the time being.

Following the news that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has tested positive for COVID-19, the Premier League is holding an emergency meeting this morning in order to discuss what is going to happen to the remainder of the fixtures this season.

Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi has also tested positive for the coronavirus, and as we look ahead to the immediate future, it seems as if this ripple effect is going to continue. The logical next step seems to be suspending the league for at least a few weeks, if not a month, before analysing what to do from that point on.

Reaction to Arsenal vs Manchester City being postponed 0

Arsenal’s game against Manchester City tonight has been postponed due to several players and staff members coming into contact with the Olympiacos owner, who is known to have contracted the coronavirus.

The big concern for many is that Arsenal could now be forced to have a number of other games called off due to the fact that they have to quarantine for 14 days. They have a game against Burnley coming up at the weekend, and while this may all be redundant if the virus continues to spread as it has been doing, it wouldn’t be surprising to see that being called off, too.

On our unbeaten league run:
It’s only turning a corner in terms of results. A little bit in terms of the things I want to see from my team, but they were telling me now that ‘I’ve turned the ship around’, that ship still has to turn a few times more to see what we want to see. It’s part of the process, it doesn’t happen overnight, we are positive that we can keep going on this from the eight or nine weeks that we’ve been here. It will be down to the performances that we put in and it will be related to the results.

It was another nervous afternoon in North London as Arsenal narrowly edged their way past West Ham United and picked up another three points as their push for a place in the top four, or perhaps five, continues. After the game Mikel Arteta gave his thoughts on the big result.

It’s time to get back into the swing of Premier League football as Arsenal prepare to try and work their way back into the top four mix. While it’s going to take a while for them to be viewed as serious contenders once again, the hope is that they can build up some momentum against sides that, realistically, they should be beating.

West Ham United almost certainly fall into that category and while it’s going to be a bit of a slog, they’ll be viewed as the favourites to come away with the three points from the Emirates later today.

On how Auba has trained after missing that chance against Olympiacos:
He was down. He felt responsible for what happened. We all tried to convince him that even though he had the best chance of the game, he was the one who put us in that situation earlier. He’s done it [scored] on many occasions this season and last season. We need him happy, smiling and full of energy. That’s the way he’s looked for the last few days.

Arsenal were able to get back into the rhythm of picking up wins on Monday night as they went through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a nice win over Portsmouth. They desperately needed it after the disappointing loss at the hands of Olympiakos, but now, their attention must once again turn to another competition as they prepare to host West Ham United in the Premier League.

Prior to the game, Mikel Arteta spoke to the media as the Gunners attempt to keep their solid PL run going.
