On Friday morning, the Premier League announced a number of TV fixtures, including six Arsenal matches in August and September. Here is the list of updated fixtures along with the channel on which the games will be shown.

Arsenal have also had a number of games moved for Europa League participation. The first of these is the Aston Villa game, moved to Sunday 22 September, but it won’t be televised.

The rest of the Europa-related fixtures are too far away for us to know if they’ll be selected for TV or not, but here’s the full list anyway.

  • Sunday 22 September 2019 – Arsenal vs Aston Villa
  • Sunday 6 October 2019 – Arsenal vs AFC Bournemouth
  • TBC – Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
  • Sunday 10 November – Leicester City vs Arsenal
  • Sunday 1 December – Norwich City vs Arsenal
  • TBC – Arsenal vs Manchester City

It’s no real surprise to see Arsenal on TV so much in the early weeks of the season, what with the trips to Old Trafford, Anfield and hosting a North London derby in the opening two months. The pressure will be on to perform from the start.
