Arsenal's WSL clash with Tottenham has been rescheduled for Wednesday 4 May at 7:15pm (BST) and will still take place at the Emirates Stadium as originally intended.

The north London derby had previously been timetabled for Saturday 26 March, but was postponed due to a number of Covid-19 cases in the Tottenham camp.

A bumper crowd had been expected for the fixture at the Emirates - the fourth time that Arsenal have played at the stadium this season - with the 2019/20 north London derby at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium drawing the biggest attendance in WSL history.

All previously purchased tickets for the fixture remain valid. Tickets remain available and will go on sale on Thursday, priced at £12 for adults and £6 for concessions.

The fixture will be the penultimate match of the season for both teams, with the campaign's final fixtures taking place four days later on Sunday 8 May.

Arsenal currently sit one point behind WSL leaders Chelsea, and will likely go into the north London derby needing a win to keep the pressure on their title rivals ahead of the final day of the season.

The Gunners conclude their season with a trip to West Ham, while Chelsea host Champions League chasing Manchester United.

Tottenham had been heading into March's north London derby in the thick of a European race of their own after an outstanding season, but have fallen away in recent weeks following defeats to Manchester City and Aston Villa.

Spurs currently sit 10 points behind Manchester United in third, but do have two games in hand.
