Liverpool Football Club have seen four of their domestic fixtures altered, after the Premier League announced today which matches would be televised during the months of August and September.
The Reds will get their 2022/2023 campaign underway at Fulham on August 6th, a game which has already been picked to be shown live, and a further five fixtures involving the Reds will also be accessible for viewers at home in the opening two months of the season.
Liverpool’s second game of the campaign against Crystal Palace has been moved from a Saturday (August 13th) to a Monday (August 15th) and will be played at 8pm. The same applies to the Reds’ third fixture in the 2022/2023 season against bitter rivals Manchester United, which will now be staged on a Monday. The final game of August versus Newcastle United has been acquired by BT Sport.
The date of the first Merseyside Derby (September 3rd) has remained the same, though the kick-off time has been brought forward to 12:30pm. One final change sees the Reds’ away meeting with Chelsea switched from Saturday, September 17th to the late kick-off on Sunday, September 18th.
Liverpool vs Bournemouth (August 27, 3pm) and Liverpool vs Wolves (September 10, 3pm) are the only two fixtures that will remain unavailable for TV viewers and can only be watched by those lucky enough to be inside Anfield.
