Premier League confirm latest fixture changes and TV selections for April

The Premier League has confirmed that all rescheduled games will continue to be available to watch on live television, but some have been moved to fit in with the schedule.

Liverpool have received news that two of their April fixtures will be moved, leaving them with a Monday night game and a Saturday lunchtime game.

The Reds will no doubt be happy that they no longer have to play just three days after their Champions League second-leg tie against Real Madrid.

Instead, their game against Leeds United will take place on the Monday night, giving them ample time to recover.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United have all avoided having any fixtures re-arranged, but will all have games broadcast on television in the next month.

The Blues face off against Porto in the Champions League quarter-finals, with a game against Crystal Palace sandwiched between the two legs.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have, however, received a small boost with news that their trip to Selhurst Park will be a 5.30pm kick off on Saturday 3, giving them a bit of time to recover after their trip to face Porto on the Wednesday prior.

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho might be quite happy, however.

The Portuguese manager will apparently be fired if Spurs miss out on the Champions League, a seemingly near-impossible task at the moment.

But he received a slight boost with news that Spurs have had two of their remaining fixtures changed due to television schedules.

Their trip to face Everton will now take place on Friday, April 16, having previously been scheduled for the Saturday of that weekend.

The game will give Spurs the daunting prospect of playing three games in the space of ten days.

Spurs’ EFL Cup final against Manchester City will take place just four days later, giving Mourinho a quick turnaround.
