Tottenham Hotspur will host Chelsea at Wembley Stadium in an 8pm kick-off on Tuesday 8 January followed by Burton Albion visiting Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday 9 January at 7:45pm.

As a result of potential fixture congestion, the 2nd-leg dates cannot be confirmed at this current time.

EFL Statement


Confirmed dates for the first leg ties were released earlier this week but finalising arrangements for the return legs is being held up by a complicated and congested fixture schedule.

The challenge comes as a result of Club involvement in multiple competitions, and the EFL is working closely with the Premier League and the Football Association to reach an acceptable solution for all parties.

The situation as it stands is as follows:

Both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have games currently scheduled for Sunday 20 January, and therefore would wish to avoid playing their second legs on Tuesday 22 January.

If either Club was asked to play on Thursday 24 January, then their potential involvement in the FA Cup Fourth Round needs to be considered the following weekend, as the FA cannot guarantee scheduling either side on Sunday 27 January if either Tottenham Hotspur or Chelsea draw Newcastle United or Manchester City.

This is because Newcastle United play Manchester City in a Premier League live television game the following Tuesday 29 January which cannot move.

A decision will therefore be taken with the involvement of all parties when the options are clearer following the completion of the FA Cup Round Four Draw.

Given Man City's PL games on Sun 20th and Tue 29th on TV, you'd expect their Burton game to fall on Wed 23rd, and Burnley FA Cup game on Sat 26th.

Spurs-Chelsea league cup game can go on Thu 24th with little issue now, both can play FA Cup on Sunday (Palace v Spurs - both have Wednesday league games following; and Chelsea v SheffW/Luton - just will shift Chelsea's game to Wednesday)


And I'd put short odds on Arsenal-Man U being the Friday night FA cup game on BBC :)

So apart from Bournemouth v Chelsea, NONE of the midweek Pl games scheduled for Tuesday January 29th will need to be moved

I think this had a huge bearing on the TV picks shown above

Tuesday 29 January 2019
Arsenal  v Cardiff
Fulham v Brighton
Huddersfield v Everton
Wolves v West Ham
Man Utd v Burnley
Newcastle v Man City
