Arsenal’s Premier League fixtures for festive period announced with timings

Leeds United vs Arsenal Match Preview

The Premier League have officially confirmed the dates and timings for Arsenal’s festive fixtures against West Ham United, Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United.

The Gunners have been in exceptional form during their opening 11 games of the top-flight campaign. They are currently top of the standings with a two-point lead over Manchester City.

The north London giants have another three league games to play against Nottingham Forest, Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers before the winter break due to the World Cup.

They will restart their league campaign on Boxing Day against West Ham, but it will be a late kick-off. Initially scheduled for 3pm GMT, the London derby has been pushed to 8pm GMT.

This has been done for live TV coverage. The derby will be shown on Amazon Prime Video in the UK. Meanwhile, there has also been a change of timing for the trip to Brighton & Hove Albion on New Year’s Eve.

The Gunners will kick-off against the Seagulls on the road at 5.30pm GMT. The game will be shown live on Sky Sports. Elsewhere, Arsenal’s home game against Newcastle United has a new date and timing altogether.

Instead of January 2, it will be played 24 hours later. The match will likewise be telecasted on Sky Sports with an 8pm GMT kick-off.

Aside from the three league games, the Gunners could also have an extra Carabao Cup fourth round tie before the turn of the year, suppose they manage to stay alive in the Cup competition.

If the Gunners beat Brighton & Hove Albion next month, they will face a new opponent on either December 20 or 21. The club could return to action within two days of the World Cup final.
