Any amended fixture dates in February will be announced by the end of this month due to Premier League teams progressing to the knockout stages of UEFA club competitions.

A mid-season player break will see all fixtures in match round 26 played across the weekends of February 7-10 and 14-17 with each team given a weekend off.

The draws for the Champions League Round of 16 and Europa League Round of 32 will be conducted on Monday December 16, meaning the Premier League can allocate their fixtures accordingly soon after.

It is expected any amendments will be released no later than Friday, December 20.

The Hornets have a tough set of fixtures awaiting them in February, with the month beginning with Everton at home.

That will be followed by trips to Brighton and Manchester United before finishing with a tricky home game against current league leaders Liverpool.
