Full Premier League TV schedule released: Liverpool fans delighted as Reds consistently on Sky & BT

Posted by

Today, the Premier League announced the matches which will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and BT ahead of the upcoming season.

Reds will be able to watch Liverpool’s opening fixture away to Arsenal, which is about as difficult a start to the new campaign as we imagine.

If that wasn’t tricky enough, we face Spurs, champions Leicester and Chelsea after a tie with Burnley. For those not travelling to games though, all will be on Sky or BT – meaning Liverpool will be on tele five times before the end of September.

It’s imperative that we make a strong start this term, and pick up enough points during our tricky run at the beginning that gives us a solid base to take advantage of the so-called easier matches coming into Autumn and the pre-Christmas schedule.

Hopefully, there’ll be a few shiny new signings for us to see for the first time alongside the ones we’ve already snapped up in Loris Karius, Sadio Mane, Joel Matip and Marko Grujic.

Below, you’ll see everything that’s been released so far. Liverpool’s name pops up quite a lot!
