Norwich City's home encounter with Watford has been moved to the final week of the Premier League season.

The Hornets have progressed to the semi-finals of the FA Cup and will take on Crystal Palace at Wembley on the weekend of April 23-34.

That clashed with the Hertfordshire side's scheduled trip to Carrow Road, which has now been switched to a 7.45pm kick-off on Wednesday, May 11.

The switch means that City's final three games will now see them host Manchester United on Saturday, May 7 and Watford on Wednesday, May 11, before travelling to Everton on Sunday May 15.

Those dates are still subject to potential adjustments for television coverage.
