Premier League match between Man City & Arsenal postponed due to coronavirus

The first Premier League casualty of the Coronavirus has been announced as the game between Man City and Arsenal has been postponed.

The two teams were set to face each other this evening however contact between Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis and a number of Arsenal players has led to the precautions.

Arsenal said Marinakis, 52, met a number of their players when the Gunners hosted the Greek side in a Europa League match two weeks ago.

Marinakis – who also owns Championship side Nottingham Forest – said on Tuesday he had tested positive for Coronavirus 

Olympiakos will still host Wolves in the Europa League on Thursday, after Uefa rejected Wolves request for the last-16 first-leg match to be postponed.

Latest figures show 382 cases of the virus in the UK, with six deaths.
