Merseyside derby moved again

Everton's clash with Liverpool at Goodison Park will now kick off at 12:30pm on Saturday 7th April.

The game, originally scheduled for 3pm that day, was put back to Sunday the 8th to accommodate live broadcast by Sky Sports but has now been brought forward again because of scheduling for the reds' Champions League quarter-final with Manchester City.

The change hasn't gone down well with late breakfaster, Jürgen Klopp, who said:

“I'm already angry to be honest because I heard a second ago that the Premier League will put our game against Everton at 12:30 on the Saturday.

“I know countries where they move games, that they cancel whole match days so their teams can play in a proper shape.

“We play at 7:45 on Wednesday night and play [again] 12:30 on Saturday. The other team plays at 5:30.

“Can you imagine how big the difference is in this five hours? It means the world in preparation, in recovery.

“Put it on at a normal time and not at breakfast."
