Sky’s Carabao Cup plan revealed amid fixture pile up


Sky Sports have unveiled their televised games for the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup and unsurprisingly the Hammers visit to Liverpool is among them.

The two top matches in the competition will be featured with our huge game against the Reds taking its place on the schedules along with Chelsea’s game against Newcastle United.

Our game will be broadcast on December 20 whilst the match in south west London will be held on the 19th. Kick off times for both are at 8pm although that may still be open for consideration.

It means that between December 14th and 30th Liverpool will faces a Europa Cup clash againstĀ  Union St Gilloise followed by home games against Man United, ourselves, Arsenal and Burnley.
The Hammers have it no easier with a Euro Cup clash against Freiburg, followed by a home match versus Wolves, before the game at Liverpool which is followed by Manchester United at home and Arsenal away.
