As expected, Liverpool’s Premier League game at Chelsea on Sunday has been postponed because of the Queen’s funeral next Monday.
Manchester United v Leeds United and Brighton v Crystal Palace are also postponed, but the other games this weekend are unaffected.
“Following extensive consultation with clubs, police, local safety advisory groups and other relevant authorities, there was no other option but to postpone the three fixtures,” said a Premier League statement.
“The Premier League would like to thank the UK Football Policing Unit and other police forces across the country, as well as our broadcast partners, for their support during this process, and will continue to liaise with them ahead of the weekend.
“For the matches being played during the period of National Mourning, tributes will be paid to the Queen at Premier League stadiums.
“New dates for the postponed matches will be announced in due course.”
