Following the rescheduling of the Arsenal match, PSV are entering an immensely busy period that will see them play 10 matches in the span of just over a month.
The Europa League match with Arsenal originally supposed to go ahead on Thursday was postponed, with the reason being a lack of police available for the game due to the Queen’s funeral and the influx of tourists into London for it.
It has now been rescheduled and will be played on October 20. As a result, Ruud van Nistelrooy’s team are entering a period of just over a month where they will have to play hugely congested fixtures.
From the start of October to the first week of November, the Dutch side will play an Eredivisie match every weekend and a Europa League match every Thursday.
Often, there will only be three days between matches, while only two separating the clashes with Arsenal and Groningen.
This schedule would be a struggle in normal times, but is especially difficult to navigate at the moment with the club missing a number of players through injury.
Many of the players will at least get two weeks off prior to the run of games with the international break coming up.
