The reason why Liverpool vs Wolves will not be shown on TV in the UK
| Last updated
Liverpool take on Wolves in a Premier League clash on Wednesday - but the game will not be available to watch on any TV channel in the UK.
Jurgen Klopp's side will look to extend their three-match unbeaten run in the league against a Wolves side that is battling to stay in the division under Julen Lopetegui.
The Reds drew 0-0 at Crystal Palace on Saturday, only hitting four shots on target over the 90 minutes at Selhurst Park.
But 2-0 wins over Newcastle and Everton in the week prior to the Palace clash mean Liverpool are still very much in the race for the top four, although they will need to embark on a strong run of form.
Wolves, meanwhile, beat Klopp's side 3-0 at Molineux earlier this month, and two wins in their last five games has allowed them to pull away from the bottom three in recent weeks.
Fans of both sides, however, will be unable to watch the game on TV despite it being a midweek game - here is why.
Why is Liverpool vs Wolves not on TV?
Liverpool vs Wolves was rescheduled from its original date of September 10 due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
However, the game will not be shown live on TV in the UK. That is because the original fixture was to be held on a Saturday at 3pm, meaning it fell under the Premier League blackout.
Due to this, the fixture cannot be shown on TV, regardless of the date of which it is rescheduled for.
Live updates will be posted by the social media accounts of both clubs, whilst LFCTV will be providing live match commentary for subscribers.
Meanwhile, Sky Sports will be providing highlights via their digital channels after the game has ended.
Overseas fans can still watch the game, as only the UK prohibits the showing of Premier League matches originally scheduled for 3pm.
