Brighton versus Everton is NOT on TV despite it being moved for television rights reasons

The Premier League game was moved in case it was chosen for TV but now it has only been picked up by an Indian TV station

Brighton’s clash with Everton is NOT being shown on UK television, despite being kicking off at 1.30pm.

Toffees fans have an early start as they travel down to the South Coast in the hope of seeing their team secure only their third win of the Premier League season.

But according to the Daily Mail, the fixture has been moved from a Saturday 3pm slot in case it was chosen as the fifth live game of the weekend.

That reportedly left it open to international broadcasters, with India Star Sports the only channel to pick it up.

And that means the game will be shown live at 6pm in Mumbai — but Toffees fans in the UK will not be able to see it.

The Merseyside club’s faithful will have to wait until Match of the Day 2 is on later in the night to see the highlights.

An early kick off also means and early start for fans looking to make the trip to the South Coast.

There are around 3000 fans set to make the 542-mile round trip which will take around five hours by car.

Koeman will be desperate for the three points at the Amex Stadium as pressure on him has grown with the disappointing start to the season.
