Why Liverpool vs Burnley is not on TV

Liverpool will host relegation-threatened Burnley this weekend as they seek to get their Premier League title push back on track.

The Reds will be looking to bounce back from just their second league defeat of the season last time out against Arsenal, which saw Jurgen Klopp's side succumb to a 3-1 defeat at the Emirates Stadium.

It was a result that could prove costly in the long run, dropping three crucial points to one of their title rivals in Mikel Arteta's side, while also giving Manchester City an opening to move top.

However, with three months still remaining in the season, there is still everything to play for and it's imperative that Liverpool don't let one bad result snowball into a mid-season 'blip'.

Taking on 19th-placed Burnley, the Reds have the perfect opportunity to get back to winning ways and will be expected to pull off a result against Vincent Kompany's side, who come to Anfield seven points adrift from safety.

They'll hope to repeat the exploits of earlier in the season, which saw the Reds bookmark the reverse fixture at Turf Moor with goals from Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota to win 2-0.

However, fans in the UK will be unable to watch the game on TV — something Liverpool fans haven't been hit by since the turn of the new year.

This is because the game is scheduled for 3pm GMT on Saturday and therefore falls in the blackout period, which allows no games to be televised.

How to watch Liverpool vs Burnley on TV

Supporters in the UK will be restricted to radio coverage or highlights, which will be shown on BBC One's Match of the Day at 10:30pm GMT or can otherwise be found on the Sky Sports app or YouTube channel from 5:15pm GMT following the game.

For those outside of the UK and the blackout's influence, it will be much easier to find the game live.

In Canada and the USA, you can find coverage on FUBO and the USA Network.

For those in Europe, DAZN and Viaplay are among the TV companies with the rights to the game.

Match commentary, highlights and full match replay will also be available after the game across the world on LFCTV.

You can also follow along with Anfield Watch's social channels.

Thankfully, Liverpool will be back on TV the week after as they take on Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium. However, they'll be playing in the dreaded Saturday early kick-off slot.
