Date change for Irons clash with Arsenal


The Irons Premier League visit to the Emirates has been kicked back 24 hours to Wednesday, April 5 at 7.45pm.

The switch has been made because Arsenal meet Manchester City at the stadium on ¬†April 2 for ¬†live TV coverage – although the Hammers’ trip across London won’t be televised itself.

News of the date change came today (Tues) as the full list of the televised fixtures were confirmed for April.

The Irons will be looking to avenge the 5-1 drubbing at the London Stadium but have happy memories of last season’s trip to north London when they won 2-0 on the opening day.
