Liverpool’s New Year match against Manchester City is among seven games being rescheduled for TV coverage in December and January.
The Reds’ trip to face last season’s title winners will now take place on Thursday, January 3 at 8pm.
That means there will be no game for Liverpool on New Year’s Day, or indeed on New Year’s Eve – as there was when the two sides faced each other at Anfield two years ago.
Liverpool’s final game of 2018 will be at home to Arsenal on December 29, 5.30pm kick off.
The Boxing Day fixture against Newcastle at Anfield will not be shown on TV, and will remain as a 3pm kick off.
The Merseyside derby is among the other changes, moved to Sunday December 2 with a 4.15pm kick off.
The Reds’ home game against Manchester United will be a 4pm kick off a fortnight later on December 16.
