Premier League fixture amendments has bizarre new kick-off time for Liverpool vs Man City



The two giants are due to go head-to-head on Sunday March 10 in a clash that could go a long way to deciding the title race.

However, fans will have to tune into the clash at 3:45pm on Sunday March 10 in a shake-up to the fixture schedule.

Sunday afternoon fixtures are usually scheduled for 2pm or 4:30pm, however, the clash at Anfield will kick off at the unusual time, while Aston Villa vs Tottenham will start at 1pm earlier that day.

The clash between Liverpool and Man City could be historic with the potential for it to be the last chance Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola pit their wits against each other following the Liverpool boss’s decision to stand down this summer.

The reason for the newly-created kick-off time is unclear.

Other notable fixtures announced in the Premier League’s March schedule include Chelsea vs Newcastle which has been moved to Monday, March 11 at 8pm, while Arsenal vs Chelsea will take place at 12:30pm on Saturday, March 16.

Elsewhere Everton vs Liverpool in the Merseyside derby will kick off at 2pm on Sunday March 17, while Aston Villa vs Wolves will take place on Saturday, March 30 at 5:30pm.

March’s televised fixture schedule will end with another potential title decider, with Manchester City vs Arsenal taking place on Sunday, March 31 at 4:30pm.

The same fixture was played in late April last season and proved to be pivotal as City ran out 4-1 winners over the Gunners, putting themselves firmly in control in the Premier League title race.
