Four of Everton's fixtures around Christmas and New Year have been moved to accommodate live TV coverage in the UK.

The home game against Crystal Palace was originally scheduled for Saturday December 5 but will now take place on Monday December 7 with an 8pm kick-off to be broadcast on Sky Sports.

The long away trip to Norwich on Saturday December 12 has been brought forward and will kick-off at 12:45pm to be broadcast on BT Sport. That means two of Everton's longest away trips this season - Southampton and Norwich - have both been early kick-offs.

BT Sport will also show the Boxing Day trip to Newcastle - which was also live on TV last season - with kick-off at St James' Park moved to 5:30pm.

The first game of 2016 will also be shown live on TV in the UK. Sky Sports will show Everton's game against Tottenham at Goodison Park a day later than originally scheduled on Sunday January 3 with a 4pm kick-off.
