Norwich City's trip to Arsenal looks set to remain on Saturday, April 30, following today's Champions League semi-final draw, which could have affected the Canaries' fixtures.

Alex Neil's team are due to take on the Gunners on Saturday, April 30 – in a 5.30pm kick-off due to the match being chosen for live coverage by Sky Sports.

However the scheduling came with the potential of a switch with Manchester City's match at Southampton at 4pm the following day, which is also being shown by Sky.

With the Citizens advancing to the semi-finals of the Champions League this saw the potential for Manuel Pellegrini's team to be playing just two days later, on the Tuesday.

However the second leg of their semi-final against Real Madrid will be played in Spain on Wednesday, May 4 – leaving the weekend Premier League matches unaffected.
