Postponed league matches could benefit Arsenal in one way

Arsenal has started this season very well in the Premier League, and they will want to continue.

They suffered their first loss of the campaign in the competition at Manchester United last weekend.

They bounced back from that by beating FC Zurich in the Europa League on Thursday.

The Gunners were scheduled to face Everton this weekend, but the death of Queen Elizabeth II has prompted the Premier League to postpone its matches.

The Monarch died at 96 and she will be buried soon, but England is mourning and the league body has decided to postpone games for this weekend.

Interestingly, the matches for next weekend could also be called off, which could play to Arsenal’s advantage.

Because of the international break that comes after next weekend’s games, Arsenal may not play a league game again this month.

Express Sport reports that could help the Gunners recover some of their injured players.

It claims a long break could see Emile Smith Rowe, Thomas Partey and Reiss Nelson return to full fitness.

Just Arsenal Opinion

To have a successful campaign, we need our best players to stay fit and that is one reason an extended break will benefit us.

However, in the long run, this will create fixture congestion for us in the second half of the campaign.

  1. For and against for everything – but at least any future fixture congestion is the same for all clubs.

    Except perhaps that for Arsenal the people more prone to injury are more likely to get injured again in a heavy schedule.

    I hope we tell Ghana that Partey isn’t ready to play during the international break. It may be a blessing for us that our Brazilian contingent aren’t playing (they’re playing Ghana iirc so having Arsenal players up against each other feels like a waste of time for the club).

  2. How on earth can a postponed game benifit Arsenal. We ourselves cancelled Spuds last season, thinking it would benefit us and how wrong we were. When we finally played spuds, we were in a fixture pile up and worse off than when we should have played and the rest is history, we paid for. I dont get the article at all. Rediculous notion.

  3. I actually regret the league being postponed unlike many other sports that are carrying on but with a respectful period of silence at the grounds.
    Postponing the match beyond this week would be counterproductive in many ways

    1. Happy for fixture congestion in the 2nd half of the season provided that the squad is reinforced in January… and the transfer window is not wasted.

  4. We have to give respect to our mother, and for that reason, games have to postponed. And my question is? are all the games that the uk clubs which are scheduled to be play next week tuesday, wednesday and thursday has been postponed as well?
