Liverpool face Aston Villa in Premier League action on Sunday, but the match will not be televised in the United Kingdom.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are seeking a third consecutive victory after an impressive comeback against Newcastle United last time out.
Villa have been in fine form after recovering from their opening day defeat to beat Everton and Burnley in successive victories.
However, fans will be unable to watch the match as two of the Premier League’s most in form and exciting sides face each other at Anfield.
Instead, supporters will be able to watch Crystal Palace in action as they face Wolves at Selhurst Park on Sky Sports.

Aston Villa beat Hibs 8-0 on aggregate in their Europa Conference League qualifier
The clash between Liverpool and Aston Villa will not be televised by Sky Sports
Aston Villa’s are involved in the Europa Conference League qualifying rounds, where they beat Hibs 8-0 on aggregate after the second leg in mid-week.
As a result, Unai Emery’s side have qualified for the group stages of the competition and will face Legia Warszawa in their opening game on September 21.
Their involvement in the tournament saw their clash against Liverpool moved to Sunday this weekend.
The fixture was set to be paid at 3pm on Saturday as it was not selected for television coverage in the UK.
However, the second leg clash meant that the match had to be moved.
The current rules state that a moved game originally not chosen to be televised cannot later be picked up for broadcast, resulting in the clash not being available to watch on TV in the UK.
Elsewhere, Manchester United face Arsenal at the Emirates in Sky’s 16:30 kick-off.
You can follow live coverage of the action from Anfield with Mail Sport.
