Sky to show Liverpool, Burnley EFL Cup ties

Sky Sports announces the two games it has selected for broadcast from the second round of the EFL Cup.

Sky has announced the two games it has selected for TV broadcast from the second round of the EFL Cup.

The first match sees Liverpool, who were beaten in last year's final by Manchester City on penalties, travel to Championship newcomers Burton Albion. The game will take place on Tuesday, August 23 at 7.45pm, three days after the Reds' Premier League encounter with Burnley.

The second TV pick is a Lancashire derby, as the Premier League Clarets travel eight miles to fourth-tier Accrington Stanley for their first competitive fixture since the 19th century. The match from the Crown Ground has been switched to Wednesday, August 24, with a 7.45pm kickoff.

Meanwhile, Sunderland's second-round tie with Shrewsbury has been moved to the Wednesday night, while Bournemouth's trip to Morecambe and Norwich City's game with Coventry City are likely to suffer a similar fate following on from Sunday fixtures.

All remaining second-round games - including Chelsea vs. Bristol Rovers and Everton vs. Yeovil Town - are currently scheduled for Tuesday, August 23.
