The Premier League has released its latest fixture amendments covering the month of October.

That clash from the Emirates will now take place at 4:30pm on Sunday 8 October 2023 to be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Meanwhile the first Merseyside derby of the 2023-24 Premier League season will now take place on Sunday 21 October at 12:30pm.

The first Manchester derby since the FA Cup final will take place on Sunday 29th October

As such, the club’s visit to newly-promoted Sheffield United will take play on Sunday 22 October at 2pm live on Sky Sports, if that club are not also scheduled to play mid-week in the Champions League group stage.

Should that be the case, United’s visit to Bramall Lane will instead take place the previous day, Saturday the 21, at 8pm.

Brighton, West Ham and Liverpool have all had their respective fixtures for the last weekend of October amended as a result of their participation in this year’s Europa League.
