Arsenal have asked for the postponement of the north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening.
Hence, they are not in a position to field 13 senior outfield players. A request for postponement has been made to the Premier League.
There is a high possibility that their request will be accepted, given the precedence has been set in recent weeks with other clubs.
They are desperately looking to sign another central midfielder. Juventus’ Arthur Melo has been touted to join them on loan this month.
