Spurs v Everton Premier League game scrapped after riots

THE Premier League have confirmed that the nine remaining top-flight matches this weekend will go ahead after Tottenham’s match against Everton was postponed due to this week’s riots.

Spurs’ match cannot go ahead as a result of trouble in the area last weekend, which quickly spread to other boroughs of London and to other major English cities as the week went on.

However, the Premier League do not expect any other games to be called off, while the Football League also expect their entire weekend programme to be unaffected.
