The match between Wolves and Arsenal, scheduled for Tuesday, has been postponed.


What does the Premier League statement say?

The Premier League granted the wolves’ request to cancel the game due to injuries and coronavirus cases that have ravaged their squad. They don’t have enough players to play the game. The announcement came after Bruno Lage’s side saw their Boxing Day match postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak at Watford’s squad.

The Premier League said in a statement that the Wolverhampton Wanderers match against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium, due to be played at 12:30 GMT on Tuesday 28 December, has unfortunately been postponed.

The Premier League board has accepted a request for a postponement, as the wolves do not have the required number of players available for the match as a result of a number of Covid-19 incidents and injuries at the club. The council was able to make a decision in advance to provide clarity to the affected clubs and their fans. We apologize for the inconvenience and disruption caused to the supporters of the holiday plans.


A little about the topic

The wolf squad has been drained of injuries in recent weeks, with the likes of Willy Boly, Hwang Hee-chan and Rayan Ait-Nouri. They joined long-term absentee Yerson Mosquera, Jonny Castro Otto and Pedro Neto on the injury list. Two players, Mosquera and Silva, tested positive for the coronavirus last week, but further cases have occurred among the squad.

Clash of Wolves and Arsenal is the second game to be played on December 28, which has been canceled. Aston Villa and Leeds were supposed to go headlong into Elland Road that day, but the home side lacks first-team players to make the adjustment. Boxing Day’s fixture roster was also hit hard and three matches were postponed. Liverpool’s clash with Leeds, Watford’s trip to Wolves and the match between Burnley and Everton must all be rearranged.
