Kick-off time set for Gunners trip to the Etihad

According to The Telegraph, Arsenal’s clash with Manchester City at the Etihad on 17 June has been given the 8pm kick-off slot and will be available to viewers in the UK on Sky Sports.

Prior to our clash, Aston Villa will face Sheffield United; one of a raft of new kick-off times created to accommodate the live broadcast of all the remaining 92 fixtures of the 2019/20 campaign.

Sky Sports are set to show 64 matches (25 of them free-to-air), BT Sport a further 20 with the remaining eight free to watch on the BBC and Amazon.

Speaking about the decision to make Amazon’s four games free, Alex Green, MD Prime Video Sport Europe, said: “Like the rest of the country, we are excited to see the Premier League return to action.

“We will be making all four of Amazon Prime Video’s additional fixtures in the 2019/20 season available free of charge; fans will not need a Prime membership to view the games on Prime Video.”

The report also notes that Crystal Palace’s trip to Bournemouth on June 20 is set to make history as the first Premier League game broadcast on the BBC.

The Premier League is due to confirm the rest of the schedule imminently.

Just can’t wait any longer, destiny calls, time for shocks and exasperation(s). Go Gunners. Take us to Europe.


Crowds or not, I cannot wait!


Great to have football back, but I’d be pleasantly surprised if we got anymore than 16/30 points, I don’t hold a great deal of optimism. I’d like to see Tierney + Saka down the left, with Aubameyang moving centrally, and if Pepe doesn’t start stepping up, I’d like to see Nelson given a consistent run on the right. Hopefully Ozil being dropped by Adidas, and coming into the last year of his contract, he’ll add a bit more urgency to his game, he hasn’t put two consecutive quality performances together since the ink dried on his new deal, but he’s… Read more »


Yes, I remember some years ago Nike “dumping” a certain Roger Federer.
The problem of some Arsenal fans is juggling with their enthusiasm for Arteta and their rejection of Özil whom the same Arteta praises and starts each game. Tricky…


I really like Arteta, and providing he holds the support of the dressing room, I want him to be given time to work, I hope the fans stay patient, and players don’t throw him under a bus, this is a 2-4 year project. I don’t think performances as yet have improved, the Arteta bounce is a complete myth. Ozil has been on the slide since the second half of the 2015/16 season, he’s progressively got worse.

We have lots of left sides players . But me I always thought ozil best5 midfielder


Ozil best in 5 man midfield wide left . when we won world cup for Germany . Can cross and play in forwards and midfield runners. And he fast enough to help cover l.b. with having to tackle much.

We have amazing left side saka , kola. Tank and Kieran . I would play two out of these


I know it’s early for team news, but I assume we have everyone available except for Chambers?
