There will be a west London derby between Fulham and Chelsea on Thursday, January 12 – meaning Chelsea’s game against Crystal Palace the following weekend has been moved to the Sunday.

Manchester City‘s postponed game against Tottenham will be played on Thursday, January 19, so long as neither side are involved in an FA Cup third round replay.
