Multiple sources in England are reporting that Saturday's match between Tottenham Hotspur and Everton has been postponed due to police concerns. The unrest in London, which began last Saturday and spread to Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester, has left all ten Premier League matches in doubt for the weekend. Decisions on the other matches will be announced at 6pm UK time, although news is likely to filter out beforehand if any others are postponed.
Police forces in the capital have already been stretched thin throughout the week, working to contain looting mobs. While it is certainly upsetting for fans of the Premier League to have to wait even longer for the season to start, to complain about this postponement would be beyond selfish. Remember what people have lost this week, their homes, their entire livelihoods. That rather puts waiting just a few more days for the football to return into perspective, doesn't it?
