Two upcoming Premier League fixtures have been rescheduled due to our involvement in the Europa League, as well as Wolves participation in the FA Cup.
The home game against Crystal Palace which was supposed to be played on Saturday April 20th will now be moved to Sunday April 21st because of our quarter-final against Napoli which takes place on Thursday April 18th.
The Gunners were supposed to face Wolves at Molineux last weekend, but they had an FA Cup tie against Manchester United to win, and that match will now be played on Wednesday April 24th.
The Crystal Palace game kicks off at 4pm on Sunday, and Wolves at 7.45pm on Wednesday.
Both are crucial for our chances of finishing in the top four, and the schedule between now and the end of the season is pretty hectic with eight games in April alone – not least because we’re currently in a two week Interlull during which some of these games could/should have taken place.
Unai Emery will take his non-international participant squad members, and a clutch of youngsters, to Dubai at the end of this week for some warm weather training, and a game next week against Al-Nasr Dubai.
