New date & time confirmed for Arsenal vs West Brom

By on March 15, 2016


Arsenal’s postponed game with West Bromwich Albion has now been rescheduled to take place on Thursday April 21st, the Premier League confirmed this afternoon.

We were due to entertain the Baggies at the Emirates at the weekend but the game was delayed after we beat Hull City to set-up an FA Cup quarter final with Watford.

Obviously that turned out to be a waste of time as we slumped to a hugely disappointing 2-1 defeat to end our hopes of retaining the cup for a third season.

However, we still had to find space to fit in our league game with West Brom and the Premier League have decided to put it on Thursday 21st April, kicking off at 7.45pm. The game will be shown live on Sky Sports.

I’ve got no idea why we were put on Thursday but my best guess is that it’s down to TV right again. Sky Sports are already showing Newcastle v Man City on the Tuesday and Liverpool v Everton on the Wednesday, so we’ve been shunted to Thursday.

The game will be played in-between our home clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday 17th and our trip to Sunderland on Sunday 24th.

Here is confirmation of what the Premier League announced on their website:
