Arsenal’s game against Leicester City, which was due to take place on Monday April 29th, has now been moved because of the club’s continued Europa League schedule.
The match will now take place on Sunday April 28th with a kick-off time of 12 noon. We’ve seen situations in other countries where the fixtures are moved around to help clubs still involved in Europe, but it’s hard to remember that ever happening in the Premier League.
It now means we play Sunday (Crystal Palace), Wednesday (Wolves), and Sunday again (Leicester) before our first leg against Valencia on May 2nd.
Although it hasn’t yet been officially confirmed, it’s certain that our final home game of the season against Brighton – which is currently scheduled for Saturday May 4th, will move to Sunday May 5th because we play on the Thursday.
The final league game against Burnley can’t be moved, for obvious reasons.
