It was gathered that the decision came after the Safety Advisory Group at Wembley Stadium could only recommend a maximum crowd of 43,000 for the initial date, less than half the capacity.

“The League selected this match for Dec. 31 with the expectation that a regular crowd capacity would be able to attend,” the Premier League said in a statement.

“However, in spite of significant work by all parties to achieve this, ultimately the Safety Advisory Group at Wembley Stadium would only recommend a maximum crowd of 43,000.”

Further reports show that the main reason for the decision was transport issues, mainly at local tube stations.
