West Ham's first away game of the season - at newly-promoted Nottingham Forest - will now take place on Sunday 14 August (2pm). The next home match - against Brighton & Hove Albion - has also been changed to a Sunday (21 August, 2pm kick off).

The Hammers' next away trip - to Aston Villa - will be the fourth consecutive Sunday game with a 2pm kick off set for the claret and blue clash on 28 August.

And West Ham's final Premier League game of the opening month, at home to Tottenham will now take place on Wednesday 31 August (7.45pm).

The televised fixtures continue through into the beginning of September with the trip to Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea await in a second big London derby inside a week.

That game will now commence at 2pm on Sunday 4 September, but is subject to change once again depending on when the Blues' Champions League fixture the following week will be played.

Finally for the current trance of televised matches, West Ham's home clash with Newcastle United has been moved to Sunday 11 September - yet another 2pm kick off.

Sky Sports will be broadcasting the matches against Manchester City, Nottingham Forest, Tottenham, Chelsea and Newcastle while the Brighton and Villa matches are not scheduled to be shown (legally) domestically.

Lastly, should the Hammers proceed beyond the Conference League play-offs - both of which ties are also likely to be broadcast live on TV - the away fixture with Everton at Goodison Park will also be moved from Saturday 17 September.
