Man City vs Arsenal to be played next Wednesday

Manchester City’s Premier League conflict against Arsenal will presently be played on Wednesday, March 11, after the victors had the option to get endorsement from UEFA, Daily Mail reports.

This comes as an alleviation to Pep Guardiola’s side, who are short of midweek slots for the rest of the season.

The fixture was moved from last Sunday, as City were engaged with the Carabao Cup last against Aston Villa.

In spite of the fact that the Premier League suggested Wednesday as another date, UEFA had to agree to the scheduling.

They could have objected as Liverpool have Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie that day.

The game will see Mikel Arteta come back to the Etihad just because, after he took the Arsenal job in December.
