Sky Sports have selected all four of Arsenal’s April Premier League fixtures for live broadcast in a move which could cause disruption for anyone who plans their life around football.
The games against Everton and West Ham have been moved from Saturday to Sunday, the match against Hull has been made a Saturday 5.30pm kick-off, while the showdown with Newcastle is now on a Monday.
Everton v Arsenal, Sunday 6 April, 1.30pm
Arsenal v West Ham United, Sunday 13 April, 12.00pm
Hull City v Arsenal, Saturday 19 April, 5.30pm
Arsenal v Newcastle United, Monday 28 April, 8.00pm
For those of you who watch all the games on TV it could be a bumper month if Arsenal also progress in the Champions League and FA Cup.
If you’re running the London Marathon (as my brother is) you’d better do it quickly as you’ll be hard pushed to make the Emirates for the midday kick-off with the Hammers. Your best bet is Arsenal making the FA Cup semi-final in which case the Hammers clash will have to be postponed.
