Seven matches have been altered to accommodate TV schedules and postponed games

The Premier League has announced a series of fixture amendments for matches in April, including several key games featuring top clubs.

Chelseas clash with Arsenal and Liverpools battle with Manchester United are among the games impacted, with seven matches moved to accommodate live TV coverage and to accommodate rescheduled dates.

Some matches could still be altered depending on FA Cup and Champions League schedules, with several clubs still involved in both competitions.

Liverpools clash with Manchester United at Anfield has been moved to April 19, while Chelseas match against Arsenal will take place the following evening while being broadcast on Sky Sports.

Arsenals clash with Man Utd, a vital battle in the race for a Champions League spot, will now take place on April 23 at 12:30 local time.

The Merseyside derby, meanwhile, is set for April 24, although that could change if Liverpool reach the Champions League semi-finals.

However, the Premier League has yet to announce a rescheduled date for the north London derby, which was postponed in January due to a series of positive Covid-19 tests in the Arsenal squad.
