Liverpool and Tottenham see Premier League matches coming forward to help prepare for the Champions League semi-final

  • Liverpool and Tottenham have advanced Premier League matches
  • Tottenham now plays in Bournemouth on Saturday 4 May instead of 6 May
  • Liverpool & # 39; s trip to Newcastle has switched to a Saturday night game
  • Both clubs are still in the Champions League and insist on a last place

Liverpool and Tottenham got a boost for the semi-final of the Champions League after both Premier League games were brought forward.

On the penultimate weekend of domestic action, Liverpool would go to Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon, while Tottenham would receive AFC Bournemouth on Monday evening.

The Premier League has advanced to the last four of Europe & # 39; s best club competition and has looked at giving both sides the best chance of reaching the final in Madrid by preparing games to extend the preparation time.

Jurgen Klopp & # 39; s title chasing Liverpool is now heading to the North East on Saturday night for a 7.45-hour kick-off.

The competition is said to be part of Sky Sports & # 39; Super Sunday, but even though it has been advanced one day, it will still be a television.

Tottenham saw their semi-final opponents give a big boost this week when the Dutch FA chose to postpone all Premier League matches in the weekend before the semi-final.

Ajax would play the Graafschap on Sunday evening, two days before the first leg on 30 April. Instead, the Dutch league has postponed the full schedule for that weekend until May 15.

That gives Erik ten Hag's Ajax team ample time to rest, recuperate and do research into their opponents, but Spurs himself was helped by the competition when the Bournemouth game emerged.

On Mauricio Pochettino's side, it was initially planned that she should close the penultimate weekend by going to Bournemouth on Monday evening.

That match now starts two days earlier with a 12.30 hour start that has been agreed for the broadcast game.

Tottenham reiterated to supporters that their home game against West Ham will continue on Saturday, April 27.

Pochettino had argued with the Premier League to follow the example of the Dutch FA and to give their teams the best chance of success.

He said: & # 39; For the semi-final, we must ensure that both teams have the same days to prepare for the game if we want to be honest. Both teams deserve the same preparation. & # 39;

Tottenham got a hit hoping for the top four on Saturday and was narrowly defeated 1-0 in Manchester City, taking advantage of rivals Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.
