ARSENAL’s Premier League game against Newcastle has a new kick-off time at Sky Sports’ request.
The Gunners host Eddie Howe’s side in their first game of 2023 on Jan. 3.
The clash was to begin at 8 p.m.
However, the game has been selected for TV coverage and will now kick off at 7.45pm and be shown live on Sky Sports.
Arsenal will also be out for revenge because the Mapgies dashed their top-four hopes last season.
Traveling to St James’ Park for their penultimate game, the Gunners knew that victories in their last two Prem games would see them qualify for the Champions League.
But Mikel Arteta’s men collapsed in front of a noisy crowd of the Toon army.
Ben White’s own goal put Newcastle ahead 10 minutes into the second half before Bruno Guimaraes ended Arsenal’s dreams late on.
Remarkably, they have only lost once in the league since then – the 2-1 defeat at Manchester United in September.
As a result, the north Londoners are currently five points clear at the top of the Prem.
Therefore, Arsenal will be confident of getting their own back.

And that’s exactly what they’ll be big favorites for, not just because they’re leaders, but also because their home record has been exceptional in recent months.
Arsenal have won every one of their five games at the Emirates this season, winning the last nine dating back to the 2-1 defeat by Brighton in April.
