Arsenal’s Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur has been postponed as per the official website.

The North London derby was due to take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday however, Arsenal requested the match be rescheduled.

The Gunners are without 12 first-team players, four of whom are on international duty, 6 are injured, and at least one has COVID (Martin Odegaard) while Granit Xhaka is suspended.

This has left Mikel Arteta with just 12 fit outfield players following further absences after the goalless draw with Liverpool.

According to the Premier League rules a fixture will be fulfilled if a team has 14 players, 13 must be outfield players and a goalkeeper.

The fixture will be rescheduled in due course and will be the second Arsenal fixture to be postponed this season.
