Five of Everton's first seven Premier League fixtures have been switched to accommodate live coverage on Sky Sports and BT Sport.

Everton's long trip to Southampton is the first to be moved, with the game at St Mary's now kicking off at 12:45pm BST on Saturday August 15 with live coverage on BT Sport.

Everton's second home game of the season against Manchester City has also been switched, with the game now kicking off on Sunday August 23 at 4pm BST on Sky Sports.

The following weekend the Toffees travel to Tottenham and, just like last season, the game will be live on Sky. The match on August 29 will now kick-off at 5:30pm.

After the international break the game against champions Chelsea at Goodison Park will kick-off at 12:45pm for coverage on BT Sport.

The final match to be switched in the opening weeks of the season is the game against West Brom at the Hawthorns, which will now be played Monday September 28 at 8pm live on Sky Sports.

The Merseyside derby has also been changed to Sunday October 4 due to Liverpool's involvement in the Europa League, though any TV coverage is yet to be confirmed.
