The March Premier League schedule is set ... kind of. The league announced time changes for the month after TV made their picks for matches, theoretically locking in match times, but it's not quite done yet. Spurs' March 8 match against Chelsea may be changed if the Blues advance in the FA Cup so that could move, but otherwise, the fixture list is set.
The Chelsea match was pushed back to 5:30 p.m. local/12:30 p.m. ET for a later start time that some of us (especially those on the west coast of the U.S.) will greatly appreciate. But again, that match will change if Chelsea defeat Manchester City in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
There are three other fixture changes, all of which saw Saturday matches moved to Sunday. The match against Arsenal has been changed to March 16, when it will kick off at 4 p.m. local/11 a.m. ET. The following Sunday, Spurs will play Southampton at 1:30 p.m. local/8:30 a.m. ET and the week after that, Tottenham will play at Liverpool on March 30 at 4 p.m. local/11 a.m. ET.
The schedule doesn't change much for Spurs. March was always going to be a huge month for the club with so many of the league's better teams on the fixture list and that's still true. The Europa League may throw a wrench in things if Spurs win their round of 32 tie, but that's the nature of European competition and Tim Sherwood will have to decide how much he cares about that tournament.
