Confirmed: Arsenal games against Liverpool and Man Utd among 5 moved for live TV

By on October 19, 2017

Arsenal have confirmed on Arsenal.com this afternoon that our games against Liverpool and Manchester United are among five December fixtures rescheduled for live TV.

Unsurprisingly, our huge clash with United at the Emirates has been chosen by BT Sport so the game will now be played on Saturday 2nd at 5.30pm.

The following week we head to the south coast to face Southampton at St Mary’s and that match will be played in front of the BT Sport camera’s on Sunday at 12pm.

On Wednesday 13th we have a London derby against West Ham to contend with and that game is also now on BT Sport, kicking off at 8pm.

Thankfully Sky have relented to pressure from the supporters to ditch the idea of scheduling our clash with Liverpool on Christmas Eve. Now, we’ll welcome the Merseysiders to the Emirates on Friday 22nd.

We then don’t play until the 28th when we take on Crystal Palace live on Sky Sports, which means we will no longer be scheduled to play West Brom on the 30th.
