Meeting with champions elect moved to 2.05pm kick-off

STOKE CITY have today received notification of a proposed change to the kick-off time for their Barclays Premier clash with Manchester United.

The meeting with Sir Alex Ferguson’s champions elect had originally been moved to a 1.30pm kick-off on Sunday 14th April for Sky Sports coverage.

But this has now been switched to a 2.05pm kick-off to accommodate the live coverage of the Tyne and Wear derby between Newcastle and Sunderland.

The game at St James’ Park has been moved from a 12.45pm kick-off on the Saturday due to Newcastle’s progress to the Europa League quarter finals.

The United game is, of course, subject to a further change if the Premier League leaders reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup by overcoming Chelsea.

The provisional Sky Sports schedule for Sunday 14th April at this stage is:

Newcastle United v Sunderland – 12.00pm

Stoke City v Manchester United – 2.05pm

Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur – 4.00pm
