ARSENAL were set to head off to Man City tonight, but their game has been postponed for a second time.
Mikel Arteta had originally been scheduled to take on mentor Pep Guardiola eleven days ago, but that game was re-arranged to tonight due to City's participation in the Carabao Cup final.
But with Man City now banned from the Champions League for two years, the race is on for fifth – and Arsenal are still in the hunt.
Why are Arsenal not playing Man City tonight?
Man City vs Arsenal has been called off due to the coronavirus – the only Premier League game to suffer that fate so far.
The match at the Etihad was judged to be unique as a number of Arsenal players had come into contact with Olympiacos owner Evangelos Marinakis and are self-isolating as a result.
Marinakis was present when his side knocked the Gunners out of the Europa League two weeks ago and announced at the beginning of this week that he had tested positive for coronavirus.
When is Man City vs Arsenal rescheduled for?
There is currently no rescheduled date for Man City vs Arsenal.
Next week is certainly off-limits as City have their Champions League second leg with Real Madrid at the Etihad.
And after the weekend of March 21, club football packs up for two weeks due to the international break.
The new date will therefore not be until April, when there may well be further interruption due to coronavirus.
