Six Everton fixtures have been selected for television coverage in December and January, all of which will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The Blues’ first change sees the first Merseyside derby of 2018/19 switched, with the trip to Liverpool set for a 4.15pm GMT start on Sunday, December 2.

The Toffees’ meeting with Watford at Goodison Park has also been picked for TV, kicking off at 8pm GMT on Monday, December 10.

The following weekend, Everton’s visit to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City has been moved to a 12.30pm GMT start on Saturday, December 15.

The Blues’ final home game of the calendar year, against Tottenham Hotspur, has been pencilled in for Sunday, December 23, and will kick-off at 4pm GMT.

The first alteration of 2019 sees the visit of Leicester City altered to a 12.30pm GMT start on Tuesday, January 1, in what will be the first Premier League game of the new year.

The 212 hours between the Spurs and Leicester fixtures mean that Everton have the shortest time period between their first and last match over the festive period of all 20 Premier League clubs.

The sixth and final change sees Bournemouth’s trip to Goodison moved to Sunday, January 13, getting underway at 2.15pm GMT.
