PORTSMOUTH have told fans that Saturday’s home game against Accrington Stanley currently goes ahead as planned in response to the news that several Arsenal players are self-isolating.
The club have issued a statement after the Arsenal players took action following confirmation that Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis contracted coronavirus.
The Gunners say Marinakis, who also owns Nottingham Forest, met a number of their players when they faced the Greek side in a Europa League match two weeks ago – Arsenal played Pompey in the FA Cup at Fratton Park four days later.
As a precaution, Arsenal’s Premier League game against Manchester City has been postponed.
The Portsmouth statement read: “We are in contact with our governing bodies and await further instructions from them. Until then, we will continue to follow government guidelines and adhere to their advice.”
