Everton fixtures switched for TV

Three matches to be screened live by Sky Sports in December.

Three of Everton's Premier League fixtures have been switched in order to accommodate coverage on live Sky Sports TV.

The away game against champions Manchester City on Saturday December 7 will now kick-off a 5:30pm (UK time) instead of 3pm.

The home game with QPR had already been moved to Sunday December 14 due to our involvement in the Europa League but will now be played on Monday December 15 with an 8:05pm kick-off (something that will surely please the QPR fans who now have to travel up to Liverpool from London on a Monday night).

That switch will work in our favour though as it will give the players an extra day to recover from their Europa League tie against FK Krasnodar the previous Thursday.

The final fixture to be moved is the match against Newcastle at Goodison Park on Sunday December 28. Previously a 3pm kick-off, the game has been pushed back and will now start at 4:15pm.
