Everton today announced that six of their games in December and January have been moved to accommodate for live television. Four of the games are against traditional rivals Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal.
The first leg of the Merseyside Derby is one of the affected games, moving to a Monday night instead.
Hull City away has been moved to Friday night, which makes it hugely inconvenient for the traveling contingent. The Blues had played Palace at home on Friday and even Ronald Koeman was hoping that would be the only Friday fixture for the season, but it seems the Premier League have dashed the collective hopes.
Watford FC away has been rescheduled to the lunchtime kickoff, which then also makes it difficult for Everton fans going to the game as they will have to set out earlier in the morning.
The other four changes made are all home games and shouldn’t affect travel plans.
