The Premier League broadcast selection process for November has now been completed and two of our matches have been chosen for live television coverage.

Please take note of the revised fixture scheduling below.

Supporters should also note that, owing to the rescheduling of Manchester United's home match against Aston Villa to Sunday 1 December, our trip to Old Trafford will not now take place on Tuesday 3 December and will be rescheduled for an alternative date during that week. Details of the new date and kick-off time will be confirmed by the Premier League in an announcement on or around 11 October.

TV selections - November, 2019
- Everton (a) – now Sunday 3 November, kick-off 4.30pm - Sky Sports
- West Ham United (a) – remains Saturday 23 November, kick-off now 12.30pm - BT Sport

They mean Wednesday. This game was always going to be Wednesday and not Tuesday. They are in Kazakhstan on the 28th. They were always going to move the Villa game. Why in the world would you not do it before the season started. You didn't know they would be in Kazakhstan but you knew they were playing the 28th.
 
So we've got Everton away at 4:30 on Sunday 3rd, then Red Star away on Wednesday 6th. Thanks Premier League/Sky, that's really fucking helpful. Weekend matches before Wednesday CL matches are almost NEVER played on the Sunday, always on the Saturday. There are 5 other matches that could have been played in that time slot instead of ours without screwing any team on scheduling...

Mate, teams playing on the Wednesday often play on the Sunday. Sure we've done it quite a few times ourselves

Merseyside derby is on for Wednesday. This is Amazons gameweek isn't it... reckon they want United/Spurs and Liverpool/Everton on different nights if possible. Wouldn't be surprised if they try it on with Thursday and move Burnley to the Sunday... we have Bayern the following Wednesday.

They should do more games on a Friday night to help the champions League teams like they seem to do abroad

I'm not keen on Friday night matches as a fan, but it certainly helps the team. There's just no incentive for Sky/BT/The Premier League to help teams like that though - getting maximum viewers for every match is far more important to them.

Just checked back through our past CL fixtures. In the 4 seasons where we've played in the CL (18/19, 17/18, 16/17, 10/11), we've had 12 group stages matches on Wednesdays. All 12 times, our PL match in the weekend before it was played on the Saturday. Never on the Sunday. I don't know about other PL teams, but to me that definitely shows an established pattern that they've decided to break now.

In the knock-outs there have been 2 out of 6 where we've played Sun/Wed, but the scheduling for those is a bit more complex.
