Liverpool break TV record as Boro clash gets live coverage

Date published: Wednesday 17th May 2017 1:11

Liverpool’s clash with Middlesbrough on Sunday has unsurprisingly been selected for a live broadcast on Sky Sports – their 29th of 38 Premier League fixtures to be shown on UK television this season.

The Reds know a win over the relegated Teessiders will seal only their second top-four finish since 2009 – and more importantly, Champions League qualification.

They are currently fourth in the table on 73 points, with Manchester City third on 75. Arsenal are fifth with 72 points and could still catch either side, but would require at least one of them to drop points to finish in the top four themselves.

Our feature looks at how a possible play-off for the final Champions League spot could emerge.

City’s clash with Watford at Vicarage Road is the other game to be televised on the final day, and will be shown on Sky Sports 2.

But it is Jurgen Klopp’s side who are no strangers to the cameras. Their game  – due to be shown on Sky Sports 1 – has created some curious kind of history.

The Anfield meeting with Boro will be their 29th televised clash of the league season, which is more than any other side in the history of the competition.
