If there was one game Sky Sports will be kicking themselves for not switching, it’s Steven Gerrard’s return to Anfield, as Aston Villa’s Head Coach for the clash against Liverpool on December 11th. Thankfully that will remain a three o’clock kick-off, as it’s well passed the deadline for any changes.
The Liverpool game will be Gerrard’s fifth game in charge of Villa.
Looking further ahead, additional January TV changes were added to the calendar last week, with Manchester United’s visit to Villa Park selected for Sky Sports coverage and put back to a 5.30pm kick-off on January 15.seems a long way away.
The following week Villa will then be on BT Sport, with their trip to Goodison Park to face Everton on Saturday, January 22, bought forward to a 12.30pm kick-off.
The club’s other Premier League fixture that month has already been selected for TV broadcast, with Villa travelling to Brentford on Sunday, January 2 (ko 2pm).
