Four of Liverpool’s opening Premier League fixtures have been rescheduled in order for them to be shown live on TV.
The Reds get their league campaign underway at Craven Cottage when they travel to face last season’s Championship winners Fulham – a game that had already been selected for television, as to had Jurgen Klopp’s side’s game against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park on August 31.
Liverpool’s second game of the season against Crystal Palace will now be shown live on Sky Sports Monday Night Football on August 15 and their trip to Old Trafford seven days later will also be accessible for viewers from the comfort of their own couch.
The Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park is still set to take place on Saturday September 3, but kick off has been brought forward to 12:30pm.

And the last of the amended fixtures is the trip to Stamford Bridge – the clash with Thomas Tuchel’s side was set to take place on Saturday September 17, but it will now take place the following day with a 4:30pm kick off.
With us playing such entertaining football and tasting so much success in recent seasons, it’s no surprise that the TV companies are wanting to show our fixtures.
Liverpool’s home games against Bournemouth (August 27) and Wolves (September 10) are the only two fixtures that haven’t been selected for the television so far.
