Wednesday night's match between Manchester City and Arsenal has been postponed over coronavirus fears after the owner of recent Gunners opponents Olympiacos contracted Covid-19, the Premier League has said.

But another Premier League club, Wolves, are incensed UEFA has not called off their scheduled trip to Olympiacos on Thursday to play in the Europa League.

The Premier League announced just after midnight on Tuesday that the fixture at City's Etihad Stadium would be postponed due to the fact Olympiacos owner Evangelos Marinakis visited Arsenal for the clubs' Europa League tie on February 27.

Marinakis, also the majority owner of Nottingham Forest, met several Arsenal players and staff, the Premier League said in a statement.

Arsenal said those players were now self-isolating for 14 days and were thus unavailable for Wednesday night's game, triggering the Premier League's decision to postpone.

As the effect of the coronavirus began to grip sport worldwide, the Premier League said: "Following medical advice, Arsenal FC and Manchester City FC consider it is necessary to postpone their fixture due to be played this evening to give time to fully assess the situation. The Premier League has therefore agreed that tonight's game will be rearranged."

The League said the postponement was linked directly to Marinakis's infection, and there were currently no plans to postpone other matches.

Despite Marinakis' diagnosis and his position at Forest, the English Football League also says there are no immediate plans to postpone any fixtures.

Wolves, meanwhile, are angry that UEFA denied their appeal to postpone their scheduled Europa League last 16 first leg tie at Olympiacos after Marinakis announced his diagnosis.

UEFA said instead the game would go ahead behind closed doors, a scene becoming more common in sport in various countries.

Spanish club Getafe's president Angel Torres railed against UEFA for its perceived inaction, and said his side would refuse to comply with the governing body's insistence they travel to virus hotspot northern Italy on Thursday to play Inter Milan.

Wolves, however, will respect UEFA's decision and play their no-spectators match in Athens, but urged the governing body to "consider alternative options moving forwards, as this will not be the last fixture to be affected by coronavirus".

"Our position is that the trip poses unnecessary risks to our players, staff, supporters and the families of all who travel, at such critical and uncertain times," the Wolves statement read, adding the club was also concerned for their opponents' mental and physical wellbeing.

A Forest statement said Marinakis had shown no symptoms when in Nottingham last week, during which time he attended the club's home game against Millwall on Friday night and reportedly met with the first-team squad.

Confirming matches across its three divisions would continue as normal for the time being, an EFL statement said: "The League is in dialogue to fully ascertain the set of circumstances that existed when Mr Marinakis visited (Forest) last week and in conjunction with the club will make a determination on what measures are to be taken - if any - when full details are known."
