The Premier League will resume this weekend with only two stadium busting matches postponed due to police resources being stretched in the aftermath of the Queen’s death.

Manchester United’s match against Leeds and Chelsea’s match against Liverpool have been postponed.

Besides these two matches, the Brighton match against Crystal Palace on Sept 17 remains off despite the cancellation of a proposed train strike.

This is a better scenario for football fans as all Premier League matches were postponed on the weekend of September 10 and 11, as English football entered a period of reflection following Queen Elizabeth II’s death on Thursday.

This week, the Football Association confirmed that football would resume this weekend despite the fact that police resources are limited, with most of the force engaged for the Queen’s funeral on Sept 19.

In a statement, the Prem said: “Following extensive consultation with clubs, police, local Safety Advisory Groups and other relevant authorities, there was no other option but to postpone the three fixtures.”
