Arsenal and Tottenham included in next set of Premier League pay-per-view games

Arsenal and Tottenham have both been included in next set of pay-per-view Premier League fixtures.

The decision to make games available to supporters for a set fee of £14.95 has been met with a huge backlash over the last month, and is set to be reviewed during the upcoming international break.

Before that review takes place, both Mikel Arteta and Jose Mourinho’s sides will be included.

The fixtures, taking place on November 8, will see Spurs visit West Brom and Arsenal host Aston Villa.

Earlier this week the Gunners pledged to find a solution to the current debate over pay-per-view matches.

Standard Sport were told by an Arsenal spokesperson: “We recognise the concerns of Arsenal and other supporters regarding the pricing of pay-per-view matches.

“We are working actively alongside clubs and with the Premier League, and in turn our broadcast partners, to find a solution for the matches after the November international break.”

Those words will be met with optimism from those who have chosen to boycott the requested fee, with Gary Neville one pundit to call for the measure to be scrapped.

While on Sky Sports, he called for an independent regulator by saying: 'What an independent regulator does, appointed by the government, is just look at balance and fairness.

“So that self-interest through the Premier League, or whether it be other factions of football, are just able to be brought back to a simple ‘no that doesn't work’.

Before adding: “£14.95, that doesn't work, so Mr Regulator says ‘no you're not doing that, it doesn't work for the fan, it's not fair at this moment of time we're gonna stop it’, that's one example.”
