Festive fixtures moved for TV broadcast

The Premier League TV selections have been made for December and early January, with six Chelsea matches moved for broadcast.

Thomas Tuchel’s side begin the final month of the calendar year with a trip to Watford, which has been moved back a day to Wednesday 1 December and will get underway at 7.30pm live on Amazon Prime.

Our following away game is another short visit, this time across the capital to take on West Ham on Saturday 4 December, with the kick-off being brought forward to 12.30pm. It will be shown live on BT Sport in the UK.

The home match against Everton on Wednesday 15 December will now start at the earlier time of 7.45pm and be broadcast live on BT Sport. However, this is subject to possible change due to our involvement in the Club World Cup, as is our trip to Wolves three days later.

On Boxing Day, the Blues head to the Midlands to take on Aston Villa and that will start at the later time of 5.30pm, with Sky Sports broadcasting it live.

We then host Brighton at Stamford Bridge, with the date of the game moved back to Wednesday 29 December and kick-off now at 7.30pm. That will be shown live on Amazon Prime.

Finally, our home match against Liverpool, originally scheduled for New Year’s Day, will now be played on Sunday 2 January, with kick-off at 4.30pm and Sky Sports the live broadcaster in the UK.

Selections for match rounds 22 and 23, slated for later in January, will be confirmed in due course. Our fixture schedule for December and early January is outlined in full below.
