Controversial plans to hold Liverpool's Premier League clash with Arsenal on Christmas Eve have been ditched, with the fixture set to be played on Friday 22nd December with a 7:45pm kick off time, according to a report on the Liverpool Echo.

Everton's home game against Chelsea and Manchester United's visit to Leicester City were the other options under consideration to be moved from Saturday December 23, to fill an afternoon slot on December 24.

However the Premier League has moved to clarify the situation and reassured fans that their pre-Christmas festivites won't be disrupted.

As for buses, you would be able to stay and watch the full match, although you would then have to take the 11.30pm (National Express) or 11.45pm (MegaBus) bus, which would see Reds arrive in Liverpool at 6.05am and 4.50am respectively.

Three games will be broadcast live on Saturday December 23 - including Everton v Chelsea at 12.30pm and Leicester v Manchester United at 7.45pm.
