Arsenal’s two Premier League matches in November against Chelsea and Wolves have been rescheduled after being selected for live broadcast in the UK.
The trip to Stamford Bridge will be on BT Sport at 12pm on Sunday 6th November (previously 3pm on the Saturday) while the visit to Molineux, currently our final game before the break for the World Cup, has been pushed to the later 7.45pm slot on 12th November by Sky Sports.
We’re still waiting for an update on when this week’s postponed matches against Everton and PSV Eindhoven will be played.
There are some suggestions that the Europa League tie could be played at the expense of Manchester City’s visit to the Emirates on Wednesday 19th October.
In a press conference earlier today, the idea seemed to be on Pep Guardiola’s radar.
Touching on his side’s hectic schedule he said: “Always the fixtures were so tight every season. After the international break, we’ll have one month and a half with a lot of games. We have seven Premier League games, five games at home, it depends if the Arsenal game will be postponed or not. Then the World Cup.”
If the City game is moved, it would allow Uefa to complete Group A’s fixtures as scheduled on Thursday 3rd November.
