Fixture changes / TV dates

No less than seven of our Barclays Premier League games have been allocated for live television coverage during the first half of the 2008/09 season.

These include London derbies with Arsenal and Chelsea, as well as games against Liverpool and Aston Villa.

Our trip to Stamford Bridge will be our first Sky television appearance of the campaign and will now be a 1.30pm kick-off on Sunday August 31.

This is followed by our home game with Villa, which like last season's memorable 4-4 draw, will be moved to a Monday night for Setanta coverage on September 15.

The first North London derby of the season, at the Emirates Stadium, will be shown live on Sky at 8pm on Wednesday October 29, while our clash with Liverpool at The Lane will be covered by Setanta at 5.30pm that Saturday.

Our trips to Portsmouth and Stoke City, as well as our home game with Blackburn Rovers, have also been selected for live coverage.

And before the league campaign even kicks off, you will be able to see our pre-season friendly with Norwich on Monday July 28 live on Setanta, with matches against Celtic and Borussia Dortmund in the Feyenoord Jubileum Tournament both live on Sky in early August.
