Sky Sports have announced that five of our upcoming fixtures will be moved for TV, including Jose Mourinho’s first trip to Anfield as United boss…
As well as this mouthwatering fixture, there’ll be clashed against Swansea, West Brom, Palace and Watford changed – although after last season’s incidents, we’re shocked they’ve moved the United game to late evening.
In our Europa League double-header, there was no end of problems at both grounds last term. Both clubs received hefty fines, with offensive chants, banners and fights clouding a brilliant Liverpool win.
With the game being on Monday and not Thursday there may be less chance of trouble, but we wouldn’t be surprised – and the authorities will have to look at themselves for this scheduling decision.
Here’s the other games changed, and to which times and dates:
Swansea (A): Sunday, October 1 12.30pm
Manchester United (H): Monday, October 17 8pm
West Brom (H): Saturday, October 22 5.30pm
Crystal Palace (A): Saturday, October 29 5.30pm
Watford (H): Sunday, November 6, 2.15pm
