The FA Premier League have released details of the next stage of the inaugural Barclays U21 Premier League, which sees Arsenal and West Brom kick off proceedings on Wednesday evening.
As was the case with the first phase played before Christmas, the twenty-two teams have been divided up into three groups – the Elite Group, Group One and Group Two – based on their performance before the holidays.
The top eight sides progressed into the Elite Group whilst one third-placed side and all the fourth and fifth positions go into Group One. Group Two is occupied by those finishing sixth or below.
The table below then explains the next stages en route to the final. (Diagram provided by the Premier League)
As you’d suspect, all group fixtures will take place home and away. All knockout matches will take place in May, with dates to be confirmed.
West Ham United
West Bromwich Albion
