Travelling Albion fans WON’T face an early morning departure for Merseyside on New Year’s Day.

But they will need to adjust their schedules for December and the holiday period, whether they follow their team in person or on television.

Five games have been chosen for broadcast and two more have also been rescheduled.

The match at West Ham United will take place on Wednesday, December 1 (7.30pm) and be shown on Amazon Prime.

Wolves’ visit to the Amex on Wednesday, December 15 (7.30pm) will be shown by BT Sport and kick off at 7.30pm at the Amex.

There is an early start the following Saturday, December 18, as Albion face Manchester United at Old Trafford in the 12.30pm BT Sport spot.

The Boxing Day fixture against Brentford at the Amex will kick off at 8pm and be live on Sky.

Three days later, Albion go to Chelsea live on Amazon Prime (7.30pm).

Thee are two further changes related to the Europa League rather than TV demands.

Albion will visit Tottenham on Sunday, December 12 (2pm).

And, as for that New Year’s Day result, the game at Everton will be played on Sunday, January 2 (2pm) rather than on New Year’s Day.
