Why isn't Liverpool vs Luton Town on TV?

Liverpool play their final game before the Carabao Cup final when they welcome Luton Town to Anfield in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

Considering the ever-mounting injury crisis, Jurgen Klopp could've done with a week off to prepare for Sunday's trip to Wembley and a chance at the first silverware of the season. However, the fixture pile-up means that isn't an option.

While a home clash against one of the Premier League's bottom three is, on paper at least, one of the nicer matches Liverpool might've been handed, Luton won't roll over and make it easy for the Reds as they attempt to maintain the gap over Manchester City and avoid any more fitness issues.

With widespread changes expected in the Reds' lineup, Klopp called for the newly increased Anfield crowd to recreate a "European night" for Luton's visit to help guard against complacency.

However, unless you're one of those going to the stadium, the game is going to be hard to watch.

Fans in the UK will not be able to find Liverpool vs Luton Town on TV .

This is because the Reds were due to host Luton on Saturday at 15:00 GMT on 24 February 24. However, the game was rescheduled due to Liverpool's Carabao Cup final participation the following day.

Luis Diaz scored the last time Liverpool faced Luton in the Premier League.

As the original kick-off time fell under the controversial domestic blackout rule (which means that 15:00 GMT games cannot be shown live on TV) it was not been selected for broadcast by either Sky Sports of TNT Sports and it cannot now be added to the schedule despite the new date and kick-off time.

It marks another missed opportunity for UK-based Liverpool fans, amid the ongoing debate about the lack of comprehensive coverage provided by broadcasters (despite high subscription prices).
