The Premier League kick off is in danger of being ravaged by riots – especially in London this weekend. England’s mid-week international against Holland was cancelled yesterday on safety grounds as trouble escalates across the capital. Premier League officials are set to decide tomorrow whether the three big London fixtures can go ahead.

Spurs are due to host Everton, whilst Fulham play Aston Villa and QPR are at home to Bolton. The games are set for a 3pm kick off which would stretch an already strained police force in London. The League did state last night however that they had no reason to think that matches taking place outside of London would be affected. There is genuine concern however about trouble escalating in Birmingham which would put Sunday’s West Brom v Manchester United game in danger.

The FA have stated that the England game will be re-arranged and fans who bought tickets will be refunded. England internationals Rio Ferdinand and Wayne Rooney have called for calm as the disastrous rioting in England threatens to wreck more havoc. The latest updates can be found at www.thefa.com.
