The visit to Craven Cottage has been moved forward to 12.30pm by Sky Sports, although Nuno Espirito Santo and his squad will have an extra day to prepare for the clash after their home game against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side was moved to 8pm on Friday, December 21.

Wolves’ match away at Newcastle United has been changed to 4pm on Sunday, December 9 and their trip to the Etihad Stadium to face champions Manchester City is now at 8pm on Monday, January 14.

However if either team have to play an FA Cup third round replay, the Etihad clash will be automatically brought forward to Sunday, January 13 at 12pm. Fans won't be able to properly plan for the trip until after FA Cup third round weekend, just a week earlier.

Five days after the scheduled Man City game they host Leicester City at Molineux at 12.30pm on Saturday, January 18 on TV.

And before all that a rematch with Neil Warnock's Cardiff City has been switched to Friday night, as it was when the teams played out a tempestuous title decider in April. That will now kick off at 8pm on Friday, November 30.

All six games will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Two more fixtures – the home games against Chelsea and Crystal Palace – have been shifted back 24 hours due to other matches being televised.
