Why isn’t the Liverpool vs Leicester Carabao Cup match live on TV in the UK today?

Leicester travel to Merseyside for an exciting Carabao Cup clash with Liverpool this evening.

The Foxes haven’t won at Anfield since Robbie Savage and Phil Gilchrist when the latter scored the second goal in a 2-0 win in May 2000.


The closest they came to ending that drought since then came two years ago in their last meeting in this competition. Diogo Jota and Takumi Minamino struck late on for Liverpool to send a 3-3 thriller to penalties, which the Reds won 5-4.

Leicester have since suffered relegation to the Championship but have started well under Enzo Maresca, winning all but one of their games so far this season.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are pressing their authority as genuine Premier League title rivals and will want another run in the Carabao Cup to win it for the tenth time.

However, UK fans will not be able to watch tonight’s third-round clash live on TV.

Highlights will be available on the Sky Sports app and YouTube shortly after full-time, as well as the ITV1 highlights program at 12.05pm later this evening.

Sky’s TV rights deal with the EFL allows for 15 live Carabao Cup matches per season, with just two per round at this stage of the competition. Manchester City vs Newcastle is today’s live match after Manchester United faced Crystal Palace on TV yesterday.

However, you can still watch all the action with Standard sportLiverpool vs Leicester Match Blog LIVE!
