Ridiculous Premier League make Reds’ trip to Portsmouth an early kick-off

Liverpool’s Premier League clash away to Portsmouth on Saturday, December 19th has been brought forward from a 3pm kick-off to a 12.45pm kick-off.

A game already close to Christmas and into the English winter now means fans will have to set off even earlier for the game.

The distance, by road, between Liverpool and Portsmouth is roughly 250miles (411km) – a 4hr 30minute journey at the best of times.

The game will now be shown live on Sky Sports.
