The first Merseyside derby is the headline act for Amazon Prime's first season showing Premier League fixtures with the streaming company confirming which games they will show.

For the first time ever Premier League games will be shown live in England not on a subscription television channel with Amazon set to show two full game days in December, after the multinational tech company bought the rights last year.

The Prime Video coverage will be the first time a full round of games has been broadcast live. Between December 3rd and 5th all 20 teams will feature with Liverpool vs Everton and Manchester United vs Spurs the headline games.

Later in the month all 10 games Boxing Day games, which includes matches on December 27th, will be shown with champions Manchester City visiting Wolves probably the most intriguing fixture.

Customers who have Amazon Prime will be able to access all the games for free and new customers can join for just £7.99 for a month, which is a decent price for 20 games of football including some of the biggest of the season.

On top of those live games the streaming service are also due to show a Premier League highlights show every week.

Amazon bought their two rounds of games last June as the Premier League left four rounds open for bidding to streaming services but the likes of Facebook,Netflix, Apple, Facebook and Google didn't bid and BT Sport bought the other two packages.

The season kicks off on August 9th with Liverpool facing newly promoted Championship winners Norwich City in the season opener.

Five days before that Jurgen Klopp's side face Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in the Community Shield, after the Sky Blues won the Premier League and FA Cup double meaning the league runners up will their opponents.

It'll be a season full of firsts as far as fixtures are concerned in England's top tier as it'll also be the first season with a winter break.

Games will fortunately still continue throughout the Christmas period but teams will be given a week off later in the winter.
