However, the North London outfit have released an update confirming that at this time, the 7.45pm kickoff will not be disrupted.
A statement on the club’s official website read: “Thursday night’s match against Manchester City at Emirates Stadium is scheduled to go ahead as planned. We will continue to monitor weather conditions and work with local agencies but, unless there is a further announcement, the match is on.”
