City face punishing schedule of four games in just eleven days at start of November
City's home fixtures against Fulham and Southampton at the beginning of November have both been moved, the club have revealed.
The fourth round Carabao Cup tie against the Cottagers will be played at 7.45pm on Thursday, 1st November. As a result, the Premier League game against Southampton, also at The Etihad, has been moved back 24 hours and will now take place at 3pm on Sunday, 4th November.
These changes were necessitated by Tottenham's rescheduling of the Premier League game at Wembley, due to a clash with an NFL fixture.
It means the Blues now face a punishing schedule of four games in just eleven days, with games against Shakhtar Donetsk (November 7th) and the Manchester derby (November 11th) to follow.
