Everton's next home game against Arsenal has been pushed back 24 hours and will now kick off at 4:30 pm on Sunday 17 September.

The match was originally rescheduled as the 5:30 pm kick-off the day before and screened by Sky Sports but, following the Champions League draw and the subsequent need to move Premier League fixtures around accordingly, the Blues' clash with the Gunners has been moved again.

Newcastle's home fixture with Brentford has been moved to the Saturday evening slot and Everton vs Arsenal takes the later Sunday position in Sky's broadcast schedule. 

The move has been met with anger by many supporters who have already booked travel in the expectation of a Saturday kick-off and has been seen as another example of the disregard the League have for travelling fans.

Arsenal's Premier League trip to Everton later this month has been rescheduled to Sunday 17 September, the club have announced.

The fixture was originally scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 16 at 5:30 pm. However, it has now been moved to the following day after Newcastle United's home game with Brentford being bought a day forward due to their Champions League campaign kicking-off the following Tuesday.

Incredible! As if being an Everton fan wasn't hard enough.

I think anybody with a train booking who cannot change it should be banging on the door of the club, even if it's not their fault, the supporters should not bear the cost.

For me it just means a 3:30 am kick-off.. the neighbour's won't appreciate my ranting in the middle of the night!

Andy Neville Southall's.

I'll change the train tickets.

I'm going on holiday on that day, fly at 6.10pm...my girlfriend wasn't happy when I told her last night that I'd be watching the match on my phone in the airport!

"What's the point, Arsenal will smash Everton anyway!!"

She's probably right but you never know with football.

I work part time 3 days a week, Sun, Mon & Tue in a supermarket. Most time not a problem to get time off but have just been told I can't have that Sun off as it's Freshers week at the College and no one is allowed off that week. Have to see what I can do.

We have 6 of us coming from USA for the game.

Left it late for hotel and other reservations but come on, two weeks is too short notice for a change. A lot of hassle and cost in moving things around.

Hoping the team show up for the fixture.

Where are you staying, Paul?

I usually hit the Northwestern before heading to Goodison.

Hopefully we can meet up with the travelling blues.

Respect. I think I travel a lot following them. I do, but I never question why.

As they say, 'every cloud has a silver lining'. I was unable to go on the Saturday so the change of day has worked out okay for me.

Apologies to all those who are inconvenienced or now unable to go. EFC official site late in reporting the change.

The Premier League as we all know does not care about the fans.
